MGB Event – Managing patient racism and discrimination towards staff on October 21
Employees are invited to join this meeting on “Managing Patient Racism and Discrimination Towards Staff” on Thursday, October 21, 5-6:15 p.m.
This meeting will feature Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Medical Directors of Quality, Safety and Equity Esteban Gershanik, MD, Nadia Huancahuari, MD and Regan Marsh, MD, who will facilitate the discussion.
Healthcare systems rarely have clear policies or procedures that address how to manage racism or discrimination from patients towards staff. When these events occur, staff and their managers feel ill prepared to address these difficult experiences. We invite you to join us to share your experiences on this topic and to work with us to develop a consistent and systematic response to these events.
The meeting is open to all Mass General Brigham employees. Join the Zoom meeting.
