  • Workforce resilience, well-being and engagement
  • Creating compassionate organizational cultures
  • Compassionate responses to social challenges
  • Communicating with patients, families and each other
  • Engaging patients, families and their communities to support health

The Compassion in Action Webinar Series offers healthcare workers, leaders and managers a unique opportunity to learn about topics related to compassionate, collaborative care from leading practitioners and researchers in this field.

The Compassion in Action Webinar Series is funded in part by a donation in memory of Julian and Eunice Cohen, and is free of charge to all members of the public. All Compassion in Action webinars will be archived here following the live broadcast.

What Is Race & Why Does It Matter? Implicit Bias in Primary Care Medicine

As a Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Fellow, speaker Juliette Blount, MSN, NP, sought to unpack the intersection of race and healthcare by exploring how race affects the care we provide, patients’ perceptions and experiences, and, ultimately, health outcomes. During this webinar, Ms. Blount will invite participants to think hard and deeply about our individual identities and how they inform our relationships of care. We’ll explore definitions of race, ethnicity, and culture; interrogate assumptions about racism and implicit bias; and delve into how social determinants inform our understanding of health and wellness. Following her presentation, Ms. Blount will be joined in conversation by Schwartz Center CMO Dr. Beth Lown.
