Location: Live Webinar, Presented at your Facility

There is no fee for this event.

Target Audience: Healthcare executives, physicians, nurses, social workers, quality professionals, risk managers, and all healthcare professionals working with women and  families to decrease disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes.

Description: Implicit bias refers to the unconscious attitudes and stereotypes that can affect our understanding, actions, and decisions. From an Awareness standpoint, healthcare  clinicians need to be fully aware of the complexities and impact of implicit bias on patient  experience and engagement. Looking at Accountability, healthcare clinicians need to  acknowledge, challenge, and manage their biases. From an Action perspective, healthcare  clinicians need tools, skills, and strategies for comfort, confidence, and competence to connect, communicate, and effectively collaborate cross-culturally.

The program will also identify existing policies and procedures that hospitals and other providers should review to determine if updates are needed.

This program is only open to CHA members.
