Information regarding Implicit Bias training requirement:

  • Requiring implicit bias training in healthcare was a recommendation made by the Michigan Coronavirus Task Force on Racial Disparities in Summer 2020.  The Executive Order directed LARA to develop rules/requirements for implicit bias training, and to consult with relevant stakeholders during that process.  Representatives from hundreds of organizations within those 25 affected professions participated in work-groups that gave input on best practices for implicit bias training. Dr. Ellen Keyt represented MPA in the work-group.
