Implicit race bias has been associated with poor patient/provider communication, less trust and confidence in the provider, and poor patient-centered communication, particularly with Black patients. This webinar explores an online course on implicit bias for academic teaching faculty and others developed by the University of Washington. Presenters discuss providers’ pre- and post-course bias awareness, pre- and post-patient centered communication, and their reflections on the impact of the course on teaching and clinical practice.
