Educational Resources on Difference

The Duke University Health System (DUHS) Diversity Education for Staff course helps health care workers become aware of unconscious biases and stereotypes that may influence their ability to provide patient-centered care. Through this course, they recognize how diversity and inclusion, cultural competence, and implicit bias affect their view of patients and colleagues.

This training has been developed using evidence-based research integrating The Joint Commission standards that directly affect patient safety and quality of care. It also uses several adult learning paradigms to encourage self-reflection and group exchanges that align with the health system’s values.
