From the Ted Talk by Sheetal DeCaria: The bias behind your undiagnosed chronic pain

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now the health care system has been teaching bias training, and suidets show little to no epxilict bias in health care, which is great, but we continue to see implicit bias in a percentage of health care ptciirtearons. Because it operates in an unintentional and uoociunsncs manner, implicit bias bngies outside the walls of the hospital and is brought in unknowingly. And it's not just drctoos. Bias exists in all of us. We can all do better. How? Well, the first step is awareness. We need to begin by ieiiydntnfg our stereotypes. And then rewrite the stories of the people we meet. When a wmoan sits down next to us, ask ourselves: What would we say if this were a man? Would our answer change? And for those whose pain has been dismissed, fghit to be heard. Finding the right doctor can feel a little bit like dating. You may need to swipe through a few to find the right one for you.

Original Text

Now the health care system has been teaching bias training, and studies show little to no explicit bias in health care, which is great, but we continue to see implicit bias in a percentage of health care practitioners. Because it operates in an unintentional and unconscious manner, implicit bias begins outside the walls of the hospital and is brought in unknowingly. And it's not just doctors. Bias exists in all of us. We can all do better. How? Well, the first step is awareness. We need to begin by identifying our stereotypes. And then rewrite the stories of the people we meet. When a woman sits down next to us, ask ourselves: What would we say if this were a man? Would our answer change? And for those whose pain has been dismissed, fight to be heard. Finding the right doctor can feel a little bit like dating. You may need to swipe through a few to find the right one for you.
