South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
About the CPD course
This course introduces the topic of unconscious bias and the effect this can have on our decision making in and out of the workplace. Unconscious bias affects everyone and by acknowledging that it does exist we can start to address the impact that it can have on individuals; colleagues; and service users. It allows for attendees to identify their own unconscious biases; the impact on their behaviours and language and allow them to explore ways they can take compensatory action.
