At this workshop we will review the evidence from social sciences and neurosciences for bias and prejudice in society. We will use the Stereotype Content Model to organize the notions of warmth and competence and how these ideas influence our behavior. At the conclusion we will review strategies to combat bias – explicit and implicit – in health care.
