Introduction
Nowadays, There is an increasing diversity in healthcare professions. Healthcare workers come
from different background, it is common that we share different cultures, religion and values. It
is not uncommon that we may unconsciously bring our bias to take care our patients. Bias can
influent the interaction with the patients and furthermore affect the outcomes of patient care.
Even unconscious bias may inadvertently propagate health disparities, affect trainee evaluations,
hinder faculty satisfaction and exclude populations from meaningful research. (Arvizo, 2019)
Discussion of bias
My specialty track is nursing educator. According to Urhahne (2015), teacher expectations and
judgments related to student achievements can play a huge role in whether or not a teacher favors
a student. As an educator, before we even have a conversation with a student, we may already
formulate many opinions based on that student’s race, appearance, and other factors, hence we
may have some expectations related to those opinions. Expectations will affect the way of how
we treat this student. For example, If I really like the student, I may be extra patient to him, I
may give him more chances to express his opinion and give him extra support and all my above
behavior will affect his performance in this class. However, this is unfair to the other students.
On the other hand, if I have low expectation on one student, I will underestimated his
intelligence and potential, which will affect the way I interact with him in class. Bias can affect
teachers expectations and behaviors, furthermore, it will have a bad influence on students
achievement and success.
After finishing The Harvard University implicit bias self-inventory, I have deeper insights on the
implicit biases that I may have. Implicit bias exists when people unconsciously hold attitudes
toward others. I was very surprised to find out that I may have bias against people with
advanced age. This is an implicit bias because I never purposely have a prejudice on people with
advanced age, in fact, I am always nicer and more patient to the older patients. I may think older
patients always react more slowly or they are not healthy as young patients, hence I always
anticipate that they will need more support from me, and that is a bias.
Strategy to Reduce Bias
No one wants to admit to having these biases, especially for health care professionals.
Acknowledge our bias is always the first and also the most important step to reduce our bias.
After we honestly address our bias, the next step is to disengage our bias(Amanda, 2020). One
strategy is to write down our action to disengage our unconscious bias. For example, I will not
associate elderly patients with weakness and slow cognitive function. And next, I will try to
counter-stereotype them as wit, full of life experiences.
Although many healthcare professionals don’t see themselves as being biased, our patients may
be negatively impacted because of our unconscious bias. As healthcare professionals, we should
continuously educate ourselves to broaden our horizons, and that will reduce both implicit and
explicit biases. We should always put ourselves in patients shoes, and make a conscious effort
to understand their situation. We must be able to empathize with our patients and their
circumstances to fully disengage our biases. All the patients deserve our best care.
