2017 Annual Meeting
Optimizing End of Life for Everyone: Exploring Biases in Health Care
Featuring Michelle Andrasik, PhD
Friday, Nov. 17, 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Seattle Airport Marriott
What is implicit bias and how does it impact our attitudes, beliefs, perceptions and behaviors as caregivers? What evidence do we have that bias impacts health and well-being? How does individual implicit bias impact institutional/organizational bias? And what are we able to do to reduce the impact of bias?
These questions and more will be explored at the 2017 Washington End-of-Life Coalition Annual Meeting on Friday, Nov. 17 in Seattle. Our featured presenter is Dr. Michelle Andrasik, lead behavioral scientist for the Fred Hutchinson-based HIV Vaccine Trials Network, who will help lead attendees in a discussion on implicit bias and how it impacts our work as caregivers and care receivers. The meeting will also feature a “privilege walk and exercise” as well as other perspectives on cultural humility in end-of-life care.
The 2017 WEOLC Annual Meeting traditionally provides an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues who share an interest in palliative, geriatric, spiritual and other end-of-life issues. The day-long meeting will take place at the Seattle Airport Marriott.
