Break down unconscious bias within your workplace for Doctors in Training (SW24-014)

AvailabilityCourse has taken place
SubjectCPD - Doctors in Training
DescriptionThis course will help participants to manage their biases and develop skills for overcoming them. Evolutionary psychologists report that we have learned to make up our minds, in a split-second, about whether we are encountering friend or foe and are hard-wired to be suspicious of those different from ourselves. Overweight people, those with a weak handshake or tattoos, and of course gender issues, race, LGBT (to name just a few!). This undermines confidence and may result in poor performance, disengagement and conflict. As a result, individuals and organisations are missing out on great talent; not forming strong working relationships, inhibiting excellent performance etc.
