This course reinforces and refreshes knowledge gained from the original Dignity in Pregnancy & Childbirth course learners completed 2-3 years ago when legislation on this topic was first passed into law.

Studies show that perinatal care clinicians and providers are generally committed to, and place a high value on, providing high-quality and equitable care. Unfortunately, a massive body of evidence shows that Black women, on average, receive poorer quality of care and have higher rates of suffering, complications, morbidity, and death than their White counterparts.

The course uses a series of new interactive activities to prepare learners to educate their coworkers to interrupt racial biases and live their values in the care they provide to Black women and birthing people.

Learners will be able to:

Teach coworkers important concepts and correct myths and misunderstandings

Describe the research evidence on racial inequalities in perinatal care and outcomes

Explain why well-intentioned providers who are consciously and genuinely committed to fairness and high-quality care can still behave in racially biased ways

Apply evidence-based strategies for interrupting racial biases and protecting patients from racism

Live their values and help others to ensure high-quality, respectful and safe care for all patients
