MiBiz: Health leaders back Whitmer order to formalize implicit bias training

Posted on July 20, 2020

MiBiz published a story July 19 on the recent executive directive from Gov. Whitmer that directs state regulators to craft rules requiring implicit bias training for Michigan health professionals as they seek licensure, registration and license renewals.

On July 9 MHA CEO Brian Peters released a statement expressing his support of the executive directive, stressing the critical importance of addressing health disparities.

Brittany Bogan, FACHE, CPPS, senior vice president of safety and quality, MHA, and executive director of the MHA Keystone Center, is quoted in the story discussing the benefits of implicit bias training and the efforts Michigan hospitals have taken to improve health equity.

“Many of our hospital systems across the state have already been doing this for some time,” said Bogan. “The training itself helps individuals to identify and acknowledge the biases that you have individually, and these often exist outside of our conscious awareness. So, there’s benefit to everyone for some sort of conversation and training about implicit bias.”
