Bristol GP Teacher Workshops for 2020-21

Bias and bystander skills workshops - 2 linked sessions on zoom

Part 1:  Friday 19th March 13:00 – 13:50             Part 2:  Friday 23rd April 13:00 – 13:50

At the University of Bristol Medical School, we are committed to tackling all forms of harassment and discrimination in our educational spaces. In particular we are challenging unconscious bias, microaggressions and behaviours that contribute to systemic racism. We believe creating a culture of anti-racism and equipping staff with skills to challenge their own behaviour and the behaviour of others will help to eliminate the attainment gap for students from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

We invite you and your practice team members involved in medical student teaching to take part in two free online training events that will give you a condensed version of training we run for our University faculty and students.  One month apart, these interactive 50-minute sessions will explore key concepts related to the field of equality, diversity and inclusion, grounded in educational theory.

Why should I do this training?

There have been two recent incidences of students experiencing racism when on placement in primary care.  We want to help equip you with the skills and knowledge to recognise and challenge such discrimination. Many of us will have been inspired by Black Lives Matter: here is a chance to take action. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting. 

How does it differ from the mandatory equality and diversity training?

This training uses examples of unconscious bias from teaching situations and will teach you bystander skills for tackling it. It is specifically designed for primary care.

Sessions will be hosted by the University of Bristol’s CAPC (Centre for Academic Primary Care) teaching team and run by Dr Joseph Hartland, the 3D Helical Theme* Lead and Co-Chair for the Medical Anti-Racism Taskforce, who has developed the training. We will focus on ideas of intersectionality and explore, using case studies, the ways in which clinical and administrative staff can challenge discrimination when they see it. You can log these sessions as CPD.

Both sessions will take place via zoom. You will need an internet connection.

These are linked sessions. Please book both.
