Providing Nonjudgmental Care for LGBT Populations: How to Recognize Unconscious Bias

December 7, 201514 min
Host: Jennifer Caudle, DO LGBT populations are at increased risk for specific health issues across the age spectrum, from depression, suicidality and eating disorders in childhood to substance abuse, sexually transmitted infections, and domestic violence issues in adulthood. Yet within the clinical arena, unconscious biases by healthcare providers can make patients uncertain or afraid to contribute sensitive information disclosing their sexual orientation, leading to missed guidance and care opportunities for higher risk problems. In this episode of Everyday Family Medicine, Dr. Jennifer Caudle welcomes Dr. Joshua Coren from Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine to discuss what has become known as the Unconscious Bias.
