Clinicians care for a diverse population of patients, which requires careful attention to how implicit biases may impact quality of care. This session will specifically address those biases and practice inconsistencies in caring for patients from diverse populations. It will include speakers and panelists who will discuss how implicit biases may impact clinical care, and will provide recommendations on how clinicians can provide better care for patients across all backgrounds.
