Unconscious, or implicit, bias in medical research and care is well documented— black patients on average receive less pain medication; heart attacks are underdiagnosed in women; and non-white, non-male populations are underrepresented in clinical trials. We offer our experiences as medical librarians as a starting point for this interactive workshop that has been adapted to fit the needs of law librarians, which explores tools that librarians can use to recognize and address unconscious bias in library systems as well as scholarly research.
