March of Dimes Implicit Bias Training: Breaking Through Bias™ in Maternity Care

March of Dimes’ Implicit Bias Training, called “Breaking Through Bias in Maternity Care,” is a unique in-person or virtual learning experience that provides authentic, compelling content for health care providers caring for women before, during and after pregnancy.

Training alone won’t lead to immediate improvements in racial and ethnic disparities, but it can provide health care providers with important insights to recognize and remedy implicit bias. These actions can result in improved patient-provider communication, overall patient experience and quality of care, and a culture shift across committed organizations towards the broader goal of achieving equity for all moms and babies.

The American Hospital Association recognizes the value of this important training program and the potential benefits of its use by health care providers across the country to better identify and remedy implicit bias.
