Series Cultural and Linguistic Competency:

  • Business & Professions Code 2190.1(b)(AB 1195) generally requires that, whenever possible, all CME presentations must include information on cultural & linguistic differences that may affect patient care.

Are there disparities among different patient groups in care or outcomes?

  • There are likely implicit biases that affect care. For instance, age based stereotypes may shift our recommendations to
    more aggressive surgery in teenagers as opposed to elderly patients for cancers

How will the health disparities identified be addressed in this series?

  • Patient care recommendations

How will implicit bias be addressed in this series?

  • Addressing unintended bias as it relates to age and referral for curative therapy for liver cancer (transplant candidacy, surgical resection candidacy, or y90 radioembolization candidacy). Higher age may preclude patients from curative treatments, and thus our session will look to recognize this bias and address it not based on age but actual performance status
