Course Description

This virtual presentation is designed to define implicit bias and discuss how implicit biases can adversely impact the way in which healthcare services are provided to clients. This class has been approved for 2.0 nursing contact hours and should meet initial licensure and renewal licensure requirements in the State of Michigan. All other participants will also receive a certificate of completion.

In this two-hour session, participants will be able to define what implicit bias is, how it manifests in their work as a healthcare provider, the current impact of American medical history that creates inequitable access to healthcare services in the healthcare system, and will give strategies to ameliorate the adverse effect of inequitable access to healthcare based on policies, practices and procedures that result in barriers  and disparities in the access to and delivery of health care services.

Successful completion of this educational activity to earn 2.0 nursing contact hours requires you to be present during the entire presentation, participate in the discussion, and complete an evaluation.
