Thursday, Forum Webinar, Using Innovative Simulation Strategies to Dismantle Systemic Racism

submitted by

When: August 19, 2021 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Presenters: Samreen Vora, Children’s Minnesota  |  Brittany Dahlen, Children’s Minnesota
Cost: Free

Register at:

Many organizations are flocking to implement implicit bias training and other activities to bring to light the structural racism present in our organizations. Although implicit bias training is the first step in creating awareness, it is important to get to the next step of behavior change. Implementation of bias mitigation strategies can be challenging to achieve. Simulation-Based Training (SBT) can be the bridge between creating awareness and moving to action.
This session will delve into SBT and opportunities for partnering with equity and inclusion training to promote health equity. The webinar will discuss how deliberate practice of both recognition of bias and implementation of strategies to mitigate bias can be integrated into implicit bias training. Real examples of the partnership between SBT and equity and inclusion training will be provided and participants will have an opportunity to begin developing facilitation skills for leading SBT deliberate practice conversations

Learning Outcomes
Describe the simulation strategies applicable to promoting health equity
Integrate implicit bias mitigation strategies into simulations
Apply equity and inclusion facilitation skills to simulation facilitation
