Eliminating Bias as Part of Professionalism. Featuring Dr. Augustus White III.

Dr. Augustus White is a pioneering African American physician and Harvard Professor and a leading researcher and writer about unconscious and implicit bias in medicine. Dr. White discusses how bias permeates decision making in healthcare to such an extent that racism, sexism, classism, ageism and other “isms” have a significant and negative impact on the quality of care. His latest publication is a call to action for healthcare providers to redefine their humanity and professionalism in terms of understanding and interrupting bias before it can do harm, and for patients to accept nothing less.
