Racial Health Equity in Patient Care

Health Care Crisis and COVID 19 Contexts

About this Project

The current pandemic is exacerbating major racial inequities in health care. The Preventing Racial and Ethnic Biases During Pandemics and Other Healthcare Crises course is intended to empower health care personnel to interrupt racial bias and protect patients from racism. The interactive training explores tools to provide high quality, unbiased care for all patients during events that cause extreme demands on our health care system, like the COVID-19 pandemic.

To optimize learning, we will offer three audience-specific versions of the course for physicians, nurses, and nonclinical staff with patient contact.

This course will be available free of charge through the generous support of the California Health Care Foundation.

How can organizations provide the training course to their staff?

Healthcare organizations will have three options:

These formats are compatible with the vast majority of LMS. After signing a user agreement (the organization will not charge for access to the e-learning nor will they use any part of the e-learning in a product for sale).

      Organizations will independently track learner progress.

      • i) Ask employees to self-register and, after successful completion of the course, provide you with a copy of their printable electronic Certificate of Completion.
