Global health experts agree that how people are treated during childbirth can affect the health and well-being of the mother, child, and family. The attitudes and behaviors of health care professionals are rooted in cultural norms and biases. Recognizing these behaviors and addressing structural racism in our health care system are strategies needed to improve short and long-term outcomes for patients cared for in reproductive, maternity, and neonatal settings.
AWHONN is committed to combatting disparities in maternal care by providing maternity and NICU nurses with the essential resources they need to care for all moms and babies. You are invited to join Rose Horton and AWHONN during this free event for a heart-to-heart conversation aimed at eradicating implicit bias with every patient, during every interaction, every time.
After completion of this free interactive webinar, participants will be able to:
- Foster reflection on biases and encourage individual awareness
- Define implicit bias and how it’s manifested in maternal and newborn settings
- Apply strategies that you can use to minimize the impact of biases on maternal and newborn outcomes
This free webinar offers 1.40 nursing contact hours.
