Implicit bias in communities and healthcare has been described as a fragmented area of research. There is a growing awareness of bias in healthcare and improved approaches to manage it with specific individuals and whole populations. By increasing awareness of implicit bias, racism, discrimination, and prejudice in a safe and supportive learning environment, health clinicians can learn and practice making conscious efforts to change by developing new approaches to understanding diversity in the patient population, avoiding patterns of preferential treatment and disregard of a patient based on race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, disability, sexual orientation or other characteristics.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Understand various sources of bias.
- Identify different forms of bias.
- Evaluate situations of racism and prejudice.
- Identify techniques to prevent discrimination.

Since 2019, at least four states—California, Maryland, Michigan and Washington—have adopted policies requiring at least some health care workers to take implicit bias training, some as a prerequisite for professional licensure or renewal.
Bills on implicit bias training in health care have been introduced in state legislatures over the past two years in many other states, including Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Vermont. Minnesota passed a law last year requiring obstetrics units to offer implicit bias training.
