Health Equity: Start Where You Are. Year Developed: 2019. Source: National Institute for Child Health Quality. Presenter(s): Stacy Scott, PhD, MPA; Elizabeth Cote, MD, MPA. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 65 minutes.

Annotation: All children deserve an equal chance to grow and thrive, but too often, obstacles to health, such as poverty, access to quality education and healthcare, discrimination, and personal bias get in the way. Addressing the persistent inequities in our health systems will take the concerted efforts of many individuals—public health professionals, nurses, clinicians, policy makers, community advocates, and families, among others. Because, while health disparities are rooted in the structures of our systems, change begins with each one of us. This is why NICHQ is launching a series of webinars to support individuals who are pursuing equity within the health system. If you have ever felt overwhelmed on where to begin with tackling such a complex subject, we invite you to register for our first webinar and join us in what will be an ongoing conversation. This webinar addresses individual implicit bias.

Learning Objectives: • An overview of health equity and implicit bias, and their impact on children's health. • A modeling exercise to explore how to recognize and address our own individual implicit bias. • Resources and guidance to help attendees continue this journey after the webinar.

Special Instructions: Must enter contact information before viewing webinar.

Unconscious Bias: Do I Have the Tools to Recognize It and Speak Up?. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Region IV Public Health Training Center. Presenter(s): Leonie Gordon, MD. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory Intermediate. Length: 90 minutes.

Annotation: Unconscious bias refers to the biases we hold that are not in our conscious control. Research shows that these biases can adversely affect key decisions in the workplace. The session enables you to work towards reducing the effects of unconscious bias for yourself and within your organization. Using examples that you will be able to relate to, we help you to explore the link between implicit bias and the impact on the organization. The overall aim of the session is to provide participants with an understanding of the nature of Unconscious Bias and how it impacts on individual and group attitudes, behaviors and decision-making processes.

Learning Objectives: • Explain the source and function of unconscious bias. • Discuss how unconscious bias impacts on decision-making and relationships in the organization. • Develop strategies and techniques for reducing personal unconscious bias, as well as the unconscious bias that manifests in teams and across the organization. • Develop a strategy for individual action.

Exploring Implicit Bias in Interprofessional Education and Practice. Year Developed: 2015. Source: American Interprofessional Health Collaborative. Presenter(s): Dr. Margaret Stuber, Dr. Janice Sabin. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Implicit or unconscious assumptions and biases challenge collaborative work within interprofessional teams and affect health equity for the population. Although pattern recognition is used by all health care professionals in their work, the results of assumptions made on the basis of past experience can be a hazard to client’s health. Women can be undertreated for heart disease, wealthy people may not be tested for HIV, or people of certain cultures may be undertreated for pain. Similarly, assumptions about people in specific professional fields may shape the way we interact, limiting the efficacy of our teams. This webinar addressed the definition and science of implicit or unconscious bias, as well as its role in contributing to social determinants of health. It used case examples to illustrate how unconscious bias affects clinical care, and discussed the research in this field. It presented ways to mitigate the effects of unconscious bias in health care, including diverse input in clinical decision-making and team care. It discussed how these ideas and objectives can be incorporated effectively into interprofessional education.

Learning Objectives: • Review the science of implicit social cognition and define implicit associations. • Describe situations in which unconscious bias may affect clinical care. • Identify strategies to minimize the influence of unconscious bias on interactions with patients and other healthcare professionals.

Special Instructions: All individuals will be required to set up a learner profile through a guest account to register for AIHC educational activities. More information about this one-time process and how to register for AIHC webinars can be found at https://aihc-us.org/AIHCregistration.
