About the Book
In the past year, healthcare organizations and systems have been scrambling to respond to health inequity. The impact George Floyd has had on the racial justice movement is undeniable. My workbook, "The Clinician's Guide to Unconscious Bias and Microaggressions'’ is the transformational tool your organization needs to put teeth to racial justice statements so that you can begin to align people with intentional processes that have an impact on your bottom line. This workbook is for the everyday clinician, faculty member, and clinical instructor who is searching for tools needed to have authentic conversations about race, racism, and health equity. It is also for senior leaders, and strategic business partners seeking to measure and improve performance around workplace safety. This workbook is a guide and a roadmap, to those who want to tie performance standards to tangible measurable benchmarks. The fact of the matter is, if you are not proactively linking processes to address inequity, you are not preparing health care professionals to be fully competent providers. And, if businesses don’t create fully competent providers their profit margins diminish as money is wasted on addressing harassment and bullying behavior. When I practiced in direct clinical care there were little to no resources to address the systemic challenges patients faced as a direct result of health inequity. Inside, there are activities, definitions and clinical scenarios that can be utilized to demonstrate ways to overcome biased healthcare and give patients the tools they need to thrive. Further, there are prompts to take action with guidance on next steps for those who want to bring social justice into clearer focus in hospitals, health systems and academic institutions.
