The Wayne State University School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development welcomes all members of our community to join us for a special four-part workshop series on Implicit Bias:
"How Patient and Physician Race-Based Attitudes Influence Clinical Communication"
In the first session of this 4-part workshop series we will 1) describe the science and measurement of implicit bias, 2) demonstrate the specific physician behaviors that have been found to be associated with implicit bias, and 3) provide training on a patient-driven patient-centered communication as a way to mitigate the influence of implicit bias.
- To understand the science and measurement of implicit bias research
- To understand how implicit bias can negatively influence human behavior with a focus on decision making and communication behavior with patients.
- To articulate evidence-based strategies to mitigate the influence of implicit bias on decision making and behavior.
