“When Good Isn’t Good Enough”: How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients. . .Despite Our Good Intentions
The outcomes of unconscious bias can be seen across all industries. But, in the health care industry, the need to mitigate it is of particular importance. Evidenced-based impacts of unconscious bias on safety, quality, and mortality show that we are unintentionally putting our patients at risk. Cross cultural competency is a "must have" skill as we define what it means to address, support and manage the ever-changing U.S. population. In this session, the participants will learn about practical actions that can be taken to reduce the effects of unconscious bias in every operation.

We See What We Believe: The True Cost of Unconscious Bias 

The outcomes of unconscious bias can be seen across all industries, but the need to mitigate it is of particular importance in the healthcare industry, where unconscious bias can unintentionally put patients at risk. Goins will discuss the impact of unconscious bias on safety, quality, and mortality, and why cross-cultural competency is a "must-have" skill.

Gloria did an outstanding job presenting on unconscious bias. This topic can be challenging if not addressed with sensitivity and respect. She did an excellent job to not judge or put blame anyone. Her personal and professional experiences that she brought forth gave people tangible examples. She was delightful to work with.
