Course Detail: WELL-9206 - Implicit Bias Awareness

Effective January 28, 2022, all licensed mental health and healthcare professionals, (including social workers, counselors, nurses, nursing home administrators, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, and respiratory therapists) must attend a one hour training on Implicit Bias Awareness. Implicit Bias is an unconscious belief system based on stereotypes (e.g. racial, gender) that inadvertently influences one's attitudes and behaviors towards members of certain groups in ways in which one may not be aware. 

This webinar will meet the criteria set forth by Illinois House Bill 0309. At the end of this training, participants will be able to:
  • Define implicit bias and explain the difference between explicit bias and implicit bias
  • Discuss the ways implicit biases are formed
  • Explain the negative impact of implicit bias on healthcare recipients
  • List ways to recognize and mitigate implicit bias in their personal and professional roles
