We all have implicit biases that affect our understanding, action, and decisions in an unconscious manner. In addition, people may have explicit preferences and bias that influence decisions. When acted upon, these biases contribute to health disparities. This training will answer the following questions:
  • What is bias—implicit and explicit?
  • Where and how does bias function?
  • How do we discuss and mitigate bias in services and recovery for individuals with Opioid Use Disorder?​
