Respectful Care, Implicit Bias and the Maternal Child Health Crisis
Dr. Nastassia Harris, RN, DNP, IBCLC
All families deserve respectful care. Implicit bias and delivery of respectful care are closely tied. Since implicit bias is a learned behavior, we can unlearn that behavior. We can bring awareness to bias by introducing the concept to student nurses. The Harvard implicit bias assessment is a great introductory tool to set the foundation for further learning and exploration of the various implicit biases. Student nurses must recognize that the inability to recognize issues such as pain and birth complications are the greatest contributors to preventable deaths in maternal morbidity and mortality. As part of this webinar, learners will be presented with real word experiences of how implicit bias shows up in clinical care and methods to transition towards cultural humility.

Community workers are often the first provider to work with a family post-delivery and have the potential to have a significant role in not only providing expert clinical lactation support but also in the protection of mental health and preventing maternal mortality and morbidity. The inability to recognize implicit bias which has direct link to respectful care will have an impact on establishing trust, early recognition of important clinical cues, and initiation of referrals among other concerns
