What Your Colleagues Say:

"“This was a great presentation and represented this important topic well”"

“Great training on a very important topic not only in health care, but in our everyday lives.”

"Not what I expected - I loved it!"

“Great learning tools to help us serve ALL patients. Thank you for the reminders and new ideas.”

As clinicians, we strive to provide all our patients the highest quality of care.

High demands on the healthcare system and on us makes it even harder than usual to live our values and commitment to providing equitable, high-quality care to all of our patients. This is because, despite our best intentions, stress amplifies our unconscious biases and makes it more difficult for us to prevent unintended biases from affecting the way we care for patients who are members of minoritized groups. This is one reason significant racial healthcare inequities were uncovered and highlighted during crises like the COVID-19 pandemic.

This course uses the stories of two patients, Rosa and John, to illustrate the way bias and patients’ experiences can result in poor patient outcomes. This course will give you the knowledge and skills that you need to make sure your care aligns with your values and to be part of the solution in addressing racial and ethnic inequities in healthcare.

That's where this course comes in.
This evidence-based course will provide insights and proven strategies you can put to work immediately.
