Provider and Patient Bias: What Do We Do About Culture’s Thumbprint in Medicine?
Guest: Sharonne N. Hayes, M.D. (@SharonneHayes)
Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD)
Dr. Sharonne Hayes discusses the impact of unconscious bias in medicine and how providers can take steps to acknowledge, address, and mitigate these cultural imprints on our automatic thought processes. She then turns the tables discussing patient bias and how health systems and providers can protect and support staff who have been harassed, along with processes that can be put in place to systematically address existing practices that fosters bias.
