In the past, human bias was regarded as conscious and intentional. Today, the new science of bias suggests that human biases are largely unconscious and unintentional. If true, this new research suggests that our biases are infinitely more dangerous than we ever imagined them to be – operating like computer biases to get beyond our best intellectual firewalls and capable of creating tremendous interpersonal damage – without our conscious intent. This program will explore the scientific basis for this new understanding of human bias and the implications of unconscious bias theory for the health care system both in terms of workforce bias and in terms of threats to clinical objectivity.
