4. Implicit Bias: Its Development and Impact in Healthcare

Implicit bias in healthcare is a pervasive issue that affects patient care and can contribute to inequities in treatment decisions and outcomes. Our behavior is the result of conscious, deliberate choices, and the influence of unconscious associations. As advanced practice nurses, we strive to provide optimal care to every patient, but research shows that implicit or unconscious biases held by providers, as well as the general population, can contribute to healthcare disparities. These disparities are frequently related to race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, health status, or other patient characteristics This didactic and interactive session will discuss the development of implicit biases from childhood to adulthood, present research documenting the impact of implicit bias on decisions within healthcare and beyond, and suggest strategies for the mitigation of implicit bias in healthcare.
