Wiki haumaru turoro | Patient Safety Week

Wiki Haumaru Tūroro | Patient Safety Week 2019 (3–9 November 2019) is about understanding bias in health care. Having biases toward particular groups or individuals can affect their health as they may not get the proactive health care they need.

Health professionals are encouraged to watch new learning modules on understanding bias in health care, released today for Patient Safety Week.

Three video learning modules on bias have been developed by the Health Quality and Safety Commission New Zealand for people working in the health care sector who engage directly with consumers or who influence the way health organisations are managed.

Module one: Understanding and addressing implicit bias
Module two: Te Tiriti o Waitangi, colonisation and racism
Module three: Experiences of bias.

The modules are an introduction to bias in health care. They 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.

The full set of three learning modules can be completed on Learn Online and a certificate issued.
