Total CME Credit Hours: 1 Category I (Formal)

Tags: bias


Everyone has bias, and, by the end of this webinar, you will understand the difference between implicit and explicit bias. You will also understand how implicit biases are formed, the effect these biases have in our community, and how they can affect the quality of care your patient receives. Lastly, you will learn strategies to address your implicit bias.

This course will meet Illinois' requirements for implicit bias awareness training and include:

  • explanation of implicit bias; the difference between explicit and implicit biases;
  • causes of implicit bias; how they form and operate;
  • effects of implicit bias; the harms they cause; and
  • interrupting and mitigating implicit bias.

This course was originally presented by Dr. Clarke on August 2, 2022, and sponsored by the ICS.

"The only thing I'd like to hear more about are examples, whether that of the speaker or someone she has talked with or worked with, when they did let implicit bias interfere. I feel that we can really learn from our own mistakes as well as those of others. Examples were generally what was done right and the potential problems of not handling a situation the way she did. While that is helpful, it's less effective to learn from what might have been than it is to learn from what actually happened."

"I like Dr. Clarke's candidness and relaxed lecturing style. She's down to earth and I'm sure has had experience with bias herself. She presents this important CME with confidence."
