Health professionals are being encouraged to watch the new learning modules on understanding bias in health care, to be launched in November for Wiki Haumaru Tūroro | Patient Safety Week 2019.
Patient Safety Week is an awareness-raising week held from 3 to 9 November. It is coordinated by the Health Quality & Safety Commission, with partners ACC and PHARMAC.
There are three learning modules focusing on:
- understanding and addressing implicit bias
- Te Tiriti o Waitangi, colonisation and racism
- experiences of bias.
The modules help health professionals to examine their own biases and how they affect the health care they provide.
