negative images and ideas associated with this disadvantaged group I focus on creating a positive light on the struggles of each individual patient while keeping in mind that their particular pain and struggle is subjective and real to them. Through this practice I am able to dismiss bias and provide safe and conscious care. Conclusion Conclusively, in order to ensure continuation of care for the masses without the risk of bias, it is important to reduce implicit bias. The overall thought should always be to be able to provide holistic care free of prejudice. Patients should never expect to receive a lower standard of care because of his or her age, race, or any irrelevant characteristics which make them unique. At the end of the day we must show compassion though our care by showing acceptance of those differences whether negative or positive which make each one of us human.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
