- Closing Remarks: Dr Faisal Khosa (Organizing Commitee member)
Both physicians and patients experience racism and inequities that then affects the ability to provide care, and for patients the ability to receive care, in safe and respectful environments.
Medical leaders have a unique responsibility to recognize and help mitigate bias and inequity in each workplace.
As human beings, physicians also have the potential to form biases.
Through a series of reflection activities, physician participants will grow to appreciate how blinding first impressions can be, how unspoken (often unconscious) biases can also pose a barrier to recruiting and retaining a diverse healthy workforce, and learn how to work through these unconscious biases.
