Mayo Clinic Talks: Racism in Pain Medicine
Registration required for CME credit
Racial biases can influence diagnosis and treatment decisions. It is important to normalize implicit biases and be aware of our own biases to reduce disparities and improve health care for patients. Joining us today is Natalie Strand, M.D., a consultant in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. She will discuss the unique, relevant and timely topic of racism in pain medicine, including the occurrence of racism in medicine at all levels – from patient care, diagnoses and outcomes to professional development of physicians. She describes our responsibility and how, if we want to engage in anti-racism, we must do it at all levels in medicine.
