Equity & Anti-Racism in Global Healthcare

Virtual Reality Training Module


Price: $50.00
Member Price: $50.00


Introducing a new virtual reality training module, designed to provide a psychologically safe space where healthcare professionals can explore their own implicit biases and motivations before embarking on global health experiences.

Language barriers can elicit bias through tone, body language, and social cues and lead to ineffective, non-empathetic communication. These biases have been shown to lead to disparities in treatment (e.g., pain assessment and analgesia), healthcare accessibility (highlighting value of a strong patient-provider relationship), and health outcomes (e.g., increased odds of an adverse outcome in hospitalized patients).

Although everyone has implicit biases, through education and awareness these biases can be addressed and mitigated. This activity is designed to change competence and performance by demonstrating the impact of bias on patient outcomes, practicing strategies to mitigate personal bias, and navigating difficult but important conversations about bias.

Learning Objectives: After completing this course, you should be able to

  • Recognize the impact of bias on patient outcomes and practice strategies to mitigate bias
  • Employ mitigation strategies, and practice navigating difficult conversations
