Who me – biased? He ngākau haukume tōku?
Wiki Haumaru Tūroro | Patient Safety Week 2019 was about understanding bias in health care. Having biases toward particular groups or individuals can affect their health as they may not get the proactive health care they need.
Three video learning modules on bias were developed for people working in the health care sector who engage directly with consumers or who influence the way health organisations are managed.
- Module one: Understanding and addressing implicit bias
- Module two: Te Tiriti o Waitangi, colonisation and racism
- Module three: Experiences of bias.
The modules are an introduction to bias in health care. They encourage health professionals to examine their biases and how they affect the health care they provide, their interactions with consumers, and therefore their health outcomes.
The full set of three learning modules can be completed on LearnOnline (the Ministry of Health's education and learning platform) and a certificate issued. The videos are also available on our website: Learning and education modules on understanding bias in health care.
