So I've listened...now what?
CASE STUDY **Inspired by points made in the Movement Maestro's repost**
You're a healthcare provider and a patient comes in seeking care for a condition you are unfamiliar with/have never treated before. What would you do?
Well, if you're an AWESOME provider: you'll listen.
If you're a GOOD provider: you'll validate.
If you're a GREAT provider: you'll go seek out the information to learn more about the condition in question.
If you're an EXCELLENT provider: you'll apply what you learned. If you're an EXEMPLARY provider: you'll teach your co-workers.
Do all 5 and you are TOP-NOTCH. UNMATCHED. HARD TO REPLACE.
Why not apply all those actions to racism?
- Seek out the information to learn more about racism in healthcare.
- Apply what you learned.
- Teach your co-workers.
Do all 5. Do all 5 in your practice. Do all 5 in your everyday life. Do all 5 with race. Why? Because once we know better, we must do better.
