Health and Wellness Focus for February’s Black History Month

February 1, 2022

The 2022 theme for this February’s Black History Month is Black Health and Wellness.
ISMIE offers helpful resources on cultural respect and implicit bias to help health professionals navigate how to be sensitive to each patient’s needs.
Download our resource on cultural respect to learn how culture has a profound influence on the presentation of symptoms by patients, the decisions clinicians make, how receptive a patient is to their clinician’s recommendations, and most important, a patient’s perceptions of care.
Take our on-demand course on implicit bias to identify ways to recognize and address potential disconnects between unconscious perceptions and conscious professional standards and values. And learn how physician satisfaction can be enhanced by exploring strategies to address implicit bias in your practice. Some states now require implicit bias CME for healthcare professionals renewing their licenses.
