Webinar: Expose, Explore, and Promote Equitable Care Through Patient SimulationLive Webinar | 2pm EST on December 8
Health disparities in the U.S. have been a long-term challenge for healthcare organizations to overcome. Underserved populations, such as racial and ethnic minorities, tend to receive lower-quality care which can result in severe patient harm and legal risk to providers. Often, implicit bias can be the root of the problem.
Simulation-based training is a proven method to change behaviors and improve outcomes, as well as to address factors where compliance and other methods fall short. In this webinar, you will learn how one thought-leader uses simulation to encourage culturally-competent and equitable care.
This webinar will enable you to:
- Train your staff more effectively and efficiently to meet the needs of underserved populations.
- Develop a culturally-aware workforce as well as reduce implicit bias.
- Address previous harmful incidents in your own organization.
