Project Implicit

03/25/2024 2:08 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Implicit bias is an unconscious attitude, stereotype, or prejudice toward a group of people.1 Our unconscious associations influence our decision-making, behaviors, and relationships. As healthcare professionals, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians meet patients from various backgrounds. To prevent our biases from negatively affecting patient care, we should identity the biases we possess.2

Project Implicit, is a non-profit organization, with a mission to educate the public about unconscious bias. Project Implicit provides a series of Implicit Association Tests (IAT) to help participants identify and measure their level of positive or negative associations in multiple categories such as: race, gender, sexual orientation, weight, etc.3

If you are interested in learning about your unconscious beliefs, check out the IAT here: Project Implicit - Harvard Implicit Association Tests
