Target Audience

This course is designed for pharmacists, nurse practitioners or other health care professionals involved in the comprehensive medication management of psychiatric and/or neurological patients.

Session Summary

“Implicit Bias” refers to unconscious associations, either positive or negative, that occur outside of our awareness and conscious control. While occurring outside of our awareness, they can influence behavior. Thus, well-intentioned people can unknowingly behave in discriminatory ways. Implicit biases have been shown to be associated with discrimination in the education, criminal justice, and health care systems. We will explore all of these, discuss the genesis of our biases and the impact of these biases, especially in healthcare. Finally, we will discuss strategies to reduce our implicit biases or at least the impact of such biases.
