Unconscious Bias (race, equality and discrimination in social and healthcare settings) – 26th June 2020 * VIA LIVE WEBINAR **

Aims

This three hour webinar provides an opportunity to understand the concept of Unconscious Bias and its theoretical and research basis.   Through ongoing research,  it has become apparent that sometimes we make choices which subtly discriminate in favour of or against certain characteristics in a person or group. These choices are based at an unconscious level, known as Unconscious (Implicit) bias or hidden assumptions.

The session will explore the concept of unconscious bias at an individual and organisational level with a focus on health and social care practice.  It also enables participants to identify positive examples in practice and measures to overcome unconscious bias. This course will be especially useful for social workers, BIAs, AMHPS, s12 doctors, GPs, nurses, care home managers, DoLS MH Assessors, doctors and other staff working in health and social care settings.

Programme

The session  will include the following key topics:

  • Introduction and aims for the day
  • What is meant by unconscious biases and how it is manifested
  • Impact of unconscious bias on the receiver
  • Science, research and statistics
  • How our mind focuses + case studies
  • Types of biases
  • Measure for overcoming bias
  • Managing situations professionals encounter – examples
  • Action plans

Learning outcomes  

By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Understand how individual and group bias impacts on behaviours, attitudes, relationships and decisions
  • Understand the risks and implications of negative outcomes from unchecked unconscious bias
  • Identify areas of personal bias and implications on decision making processes in the health and social care setting.
  • Apply the concept of unconscious bias to health and social care practice and identify methods for managing unconscious bias
