Unconscious Bias in Medicine

This resource, from Stanford University, is a CME module which addresses the recognition and mitigation of unconscious bias. It cites a wide body of research to demonstrate the importance of diversity to improve the functioning of teams and to demonstrate the effect of unconscious bias on behaviors in the workplace and clinical environment. It proposes a variety of strategies for overcoming unconscious bias. The module is very well produced, engaging, visually appealing, and easy to use, once you register for CME through Stanford. It takes about one hour to complete. It is intended for practicing physicians, but could really be applied to any practicing health professional working with a consistent team.
