Background: Evidence supports that maternal deaths among Black women in the United States have substantially increased over the past three decades. While the cause of these deaths can be multifactorial, research reveals that implicit bias can be a contributing factor. Implicit bias can negatively influence clinical decision making abilities, and therefore, negatively impact healthcare outcomes.
Purpose: To improve awareness of implicit bias and reduce its impact on clinical decision making.
