The Health Quality & Safety Commission has produced three learning modules on understanding bias in health care for Wiki Haumaru Tūroro | Patient Safety Week (3-9 November 2019) which encourage health professionals to examine their biases and how they affect the health care they provide, their interactions with consumers, and therefore their health outcomes. This is integral to our work in advance care planning.
The modules are:
- Understanding and addressing bias in health care
- Te Tiriti o Waitangi, colonisation and racism
- Experiences of bias
The “Understanding bias in health care” activity, has been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and has been approved for up to 1 CME credits for the General Practice Educational Programme (GPEP) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes. They have also been endorsed by the NZ College of Midwives and the NZ Nursing Council has shared them on their website and sent them out through their newsletter which goes to all nursing staff with a registration certificate.
We encourage all of you to view the three modules which are on our website, or, if you require a certificate, they can also be done on the Ministry of Health’s LearnOnLine platform.
We will be working to integrate these modules into our ACP and SICG training workshops. In the interim, we will also be sending this link to all those who have done Advance care and Serious Illness Conversation clinical communications training.
We hope you will find these modules useful and encourage you to share them with your teams and networks.
