A New Hope: Preventing Bias in Personal, Professional and Patient Encounters


Kenyon Railey, M.D., presents this topic in the Enrichment Lecture Series hosted by the Center for Translational Research at Children's National Hospital.

Objectives:

  • Review the relationships between cultural attitudes, bias and stereotypes while examining how these impact personal and professional encounters.
  • Recognize how bias could potentially contribute to health disparities and develop personal strategies to achieve cultural humility in human interactions while improving the perceived quality of care.
  • Explore tools to perform self-reflection and ultimately combat bias.
