Full course descriptions

Dismantling Health Disparities: Attacking Causes Healing Effects.  2 Ethics or Social/Cultural

Description: Martin Luther King Jr., recognizing the interplay of social injustice processes and outcomes, stated, “There must be a rhythmic alteration between attacking the causes [of social injustices, like health disparities] and healing the effects [of racism]” This presentation will: Discuss racism and the pathways for impact of racism on health and well-being and introduce the transformative potential development model for conducting radical social work and for dismantling health disparities.

Implicit Bias and its Impact on Client Care During COVID-19.  2 Ethics or Social/Cultural

Research demonstrates that disparities in healthcare are pervasive in the United States. The Institute of Medicine and The Joint Commission report that implicit bias contributes to these disparities. Implicit biases are unconscious and unintentional assumptions that are based on different factors such as age, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, language, weight, economic status, etc. Research also shows that everyone has these unintended biases, based on their life experiences and perceptions. In healthcare, these biases can have an impact on medical decision-making, communication, adherence, and provider-patient interactions, and ultimately may impede optimal patient care and health outcomes. Furthermore, with the spread of the COVID-19 there have been increased reports of bias, both explicit and implicit. Stereotypes and assumptions can perpetuate negative biases that can put others at risk for harm or isolation, or prevent people from accessing needed care. In this presentation, we will explore implicit bias in the setting of COVID-19, bring awareness to our own unintended biases that may affect our work with clients, and discuss tools and strategies for addressing them.
