Michigan Social Work CE Collaborative Implict Bias Trainings
Implicit bias is described as prejudices that unknowingly influence thinking and reaction to events and information. Implicit Bias negatively impacts the way people are treated by health professionals and the structural inequities in healthcare can be detrimental for people of color and other members of marginalized communities. This three hour live/online instructor-led Implicit Bias Training includes large group discussions, interactive breakout rooms, challenging videos, and self-assessments.
MORC Implicit Bias Training
Eliminating health disparities is of national importance. The National Institute of Health ranks this issue third among its top five priorities. As part of this effort, health care professionals in Michigan are now required to consider how biases (ie, stereotypes, prejudice or discrimination) may contribute to disparities, and to “dig deeper” because such effects may often be unintentional and not obvious from standard assessments. These courses meet the LARA requirements.
