Explore healthcare equity issues by discussing the impact of implicit bias on clinical care and workforce development in this workshop.
Clinicians care for a diverse population of patients, which requires careful attention to how implicit biases may impact the quality of patient care—and for clinicians involved in hiring, the diversity of their clinical workforce. This session is designed to help epilepsy providers identify, understand and address biases, and manage the risks that these biases can create.
