Dr. Beth PhillipsDr. Phillips’ article “Developing virtual simulations to confront racism and bias in health professions education” provides a safe space for sim team collaborators to design learning experiences; deliver essential faculty development in diversity, equity, and inclusive content; and understand the value of learning via trigger films and content bursts.

Leawood, Kan., May 31, 2022 — A new paper by a team of Duke University researchers addresses the bias and racism against Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) that is omnipresent in health professions and healthcare.

ATI Strategic Nursing Advisor Beth Cusatis Phillips, PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE, was among the six researchers from Duke who studied the subject, which was published in the online version of the journal Clinical Simulation in Nursing (24 May 2022).

The paper’s abstract notes, “Healthcare educators indicate they need more training and resources to confidently confront racism and bias when it occurs. The purpose of this project was to apply best practices in simulation to educating healthcare educators to confronting racism and bias.”

The work is available for 50 days’ free access through July 13 through the Science Direct site to read or download. No sign up, registration, or fees are required.
