Session Summary

There is a gap in knowledge regarding the impact of racism on mental health. Evidence of this is seen in responses to the CPNP 2021 AM attendee survey. Only 24% of attendees answered that they felt competent in this area. The deficit was reported as 0.89 which is in the top 10 on the list for topic needs. ACPE has also noted this gap and provided guidance in the form of the guidance statement to ask CE providers to address key issues relating to the impact of racial and health disparities in psychiatry. This may include decreased trust of minorities in health professionals, decreased seeking of care, discriminatory provision of care and provision of substandard treatment to certain ethnic/racial groups.
