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. In this webinar, we will define implicit bias, review current research, explore the effect of implicit bias on the practitioner-patient relationship, and share strategies to combat it.

Implicit Bias: Addressing Microaggressions and Bias in Healthcare (June 2023 Recorded Webinar)

Presented by Bernadette Williams-York, PT, DSc, GCS

Implicit Bias: Addressing Microaggressions and Bias in Healthcare (June 2023 Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 56 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 19 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from those of standard MedBridge courses.

In the webinar titled Implicit Bias: Strategies to Counter Bias in Clinical Interactions, participants learned that everyone has implicit biases, including rehabilitation professionals. Participants also learned that by gaining awareness of these biases and learning how to consciously counteract their influence, they could improve their clinical interactions with their patients. In this webinar, we will take a deeper dive into the history of racialized medicine and arm ourselves with effective strategies to mitigate bias and assure our patients receive the highest quality of care possible. Together, we will identify the components of our own positionalities and how they affect the power and privilege we have in society and in relation to our patients. Through this lens, participants will be better able to deliver more compassionate and culturally sensitive care. Actual case examples of microaggressions and bias in clinical settings will be presented and discussed to increase the learner's awareness of how negative effects of implicit bias present themselves. Finally, beyond the actions that individuals can take, information will be presented on how each of us can advocate for a more equitable healthcare system through collective action and policy changes.
