Cognitive biases are pervasive and particularly troublesome in medicine. And guess what...we are all susceptible to cognitive biases! However, it is possible to learn to identify our biases and mitigate them. The decisions clinicians make in medicine can significantly impact an individual's life, morbidity, and mortality. And precepting is the perfect time to help students learn to identify their own cognitive biases. However, to help a student identify their own cognitive biases, we have to be able to identify our own. Tune in to this episode of Precept2Practice to discover your own cognitive biases.

All Preceptors' Hands on Deck in Breaking the Barriers of Structural Racism
There are different types of racism, and most individuals do not know the difference among them. Structural racism is the root cause of unequal distribution of resources, services, and healthcare. A lot of practicing pharmacists do not fully understand the concept of structural racism in relation to not only patients' medication adherence but also students' success during experiential education. This course is designed to educate preceptors on the impacts of structural racism on patients' clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes; and learners' professional growth and success.
