    LARA-compliant Implicit Bias Training

    Our two-hour asynchronous online Implicit Bias Training meets the Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) requirements for health care professionals. Our program qualifies for SCECH hours, meaning that you will earn valuable continuing education credits while completing the training.

    The Michigan Bureau of Professional Licensing now requires Implicit Bias Training for almost all healthcare professions. This means that if you’re looking to get your license or renew your existing one, you’ll need to complete the training. Our training covers all the required topics outlined in the new rule added to the Public Health Code – General Rules R 338.7004 Implicit Bias Training standards.

    What you’ll learn

    You’ll start by taking a pre-test and then explore the definitions of implicit bias, the historical impact of implicit bias on marginalized individuals, and explore interventions to reduce bias in your work and community settings. You will engage in problem-solving through discussion posts, explore the definition of implicit bias, and apply the concepts to real-world examples. After you finish the course, you will take a post-test as required by the state of Michigan.

    Implicit biases have a significant impact on the quality of health care provided to patients and can contribute to disparities in health outcomes among different patient populations. By completing our Implicit Bias Training, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and skills you need to recognize and address implicit biases in your own practice. This will help you to provide better, more equitable care to all of your patients, and ultimately improve health outcomes for everyone.
