As a rehabilitation professional, providing the highest-quality patient care is of the utmost importance and is one of the reasons you entered the profession. While utilizing the latest evidence-based treatment techniques to return your patients to their optimum level of functioning and independence is critical, how effectively and compassionately you interact with your patients will ultimately determine whether or not they respond to your therapeutic interventions. Research with health professionals has shown that implicit biases affect patient care. We all have implicit biases that are ingrained in us from childhood; however, gaining awareness of these biases and learning how to consciously counteract their influence is critical to improving our interactions with our patients.
