Abstract

The death of George Floyd brought the topic of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to a global platform. Communication in healthcare curricula focuses on communication between learners and patients, peers, and health care team members. Issues of racism, micro-aggressions and implicit bias can have a significant impact on all these healthcare interactions. This student panel discussion will explore the implications of black lives matter for learning about communication in healthcare. Students from different racial/ethnic backgrounds, different medical schools, different countries and different levels of training will share their experiences with and perspectives on health professional learning and support needs in the context of black lives matter issues. Discussion will include current and potential curricular needs and approaches to BLM issues, including inclusion of student voices in the curriculum, as well as student experiences with racism and implicit bias. This session should be of interest to health professional educators and researchers as well as health professional learners.
