I try very hard to “center”, to get myself in a place where I am much more conscious of my reactions and actions.
Collecting and analyzing data by race to show disparities not in just outcomes but in treatment
Katie Breen, Colorado (she/her)
We made 10 commitments and are putting goals and evaluation effort behind them. We also put those 10 goals at the top of every steering committee meeting agenda
Incorporate Health Equity into all projects, implementing Implicit Bias training and debriefs for Utah hospitals.
notice who is around "the table" and actively seek diversity of voice
We have incorporated Health Equity Training into our PQC (Texas Collaborative for Health Mothers and Babies) Annual Summit - anticipating 800 + Attendees next week. https://www.tchmb.org/2020-annual-conference
Expanding data collection on quality metrics to include race/ethnicity data so we can begin to see the issue in our state.
changed hiring practices to reduce the practice of hiring from within known circles, friends, etc
We are working on building the community level trust needed to authentically diversify our board. Also honest conversations on sharing resources and decision making power.
Personal work for my patients, but also when I see things I’m not happy with in my co-workers. I try to explain how someone else might feel.
Katie Breen, Colorado (she/her)
And making sure we are tying training on racial disparities and bias to every clinical project, even if it doesn’t “seem” race-related. For example, explaining how universal screening for SUD ensures that our implicit bias doesn’t dictate who we screen
State legislature has bill proposed to require implicit bias training of healthcare professionals.
We try to implement the 5th R in everything we do…. constantly taking a step back and take a broad view.
I’m not if we are allowed to speak but we have incorporated more of a social autopsy approach to our grand rounds
Katie Breen, Colorado (she/her)
Peggy, which state are you? That’s great.
We are working on a white paper to try and get Medicaid to pay for doulas.
Powerful CDC campaign to promote the stories: https://www.cdc.gov/hearher/index.html
My heart wants to change statistics, so my brain looks for opportunities.
I find that we are at a challenging transition point around these issues- authentic engagement vs tokenism.
Nebraska has the bill proposing implicit bias training. Don' know if it will pass or not.
I loved our Implicit Bias training! She took us on a tour of our own brains!
I think this type of transformative work requires a level of vulnerability that is not often discussed as an aspect of the work.
This is about changing hearts and minds
"I think this type of transformative work requires a level of vulnerability that is not often discussed as an aspect of the work." yes
Every case that is reviewed at the state Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Committee should be screened/evaluated for racial inequity as a contributing factor, with details and recommended action.
Yes! This is also an important strategy for revealing where bias and racism actually show up in care.
Perhaps including a written narrative by a caregiver involved in a maternal death would add to our understanding of the interactions and potential for bias and discrimination.
What a powerful story.
That was extremely powerful!
that was very powerful!! wow.
Such amazingly powerful!
That was powerful and moving. Can we share these videos?
Amazing and powerful story!
Yes, VERY Powerful...transformative care
Here is the link to the video
We have to remember a patient's past experience too
What an amazing story!!!
i loved how she says “ the data says we don’t listen “ call it out
Kali Vitek (PNQIN, she/her)
Thank you for this call and the powerful video!
this helped put words around why this work is important to me - the concept that a patient feels the need to thank a provider for listening is so alien to me. that should not happen but happens all the time. the simple human act of listening with empathy gets swallowed by the "transactional" processes of pregnancy/delivery
I'm interested to know how physicians can be better listeners when they are taught to only spend a short amount of time with their patients. The more patients the better is what the doctors I used to work with told me
We will be going until 3:15 ET, hope you can all stay for the remainder of the discussion.
even with COVID and the need to turn over the room, I've noticed physicians are trying to spend less time than normal with patients.
Calvin I learned so much from that patient. Thank you for sharing this because I learned so much from her.
absolutely Leeshun, I couldn’t help but hear her voice during this portion of the talk
I also appreciate this provider's story because it highlights that we know doctors care, but there are sometimes human factors (e.g., realizing what she was thinking vs what he was communicating)
I think in addition to listening to the patient it’s important to ask the patient what their perspective is on what is happening because this is usually so critical in helping the patient.
Hi Temi! I am so glad you shared your story. SC loves having you as our AIM leader.
Great point Leeshun
Sharing our stories are important in the work we do!
I had to join late--is the recording available to registrants?
Thank you for sharing that story
We hear all of this rich conversation and invite you to stay on a little past 3:15 pm EST if you can!
Yes, it is being recorded.
@Christie - Yes we will share the recording with attendees after the call
