Addressing Implicit Bias in Mental Healthcare: A Novel Health Promotion Tool for the Treatment of Minority Mental Health Patients

Minority mental health patients face many health inequities and inequalities that may stem from implicit bias and a lack of cultural awareness from their healthcare providers. I analyzed the current literature evaluating implicit bias among healthcare providers and culturally specific life traumas that Latinos and African Americans face that can impact their mental health. Additionally, I researched a current mental health assessments tool, the Child and Adolescent Trauma Survey (CATS), and evaluated it for the use on Latino and African American patients. Face-to-face interviews with two healthcare providers were also used to analyze the CATS for its’ applicability to Latino and African American patients. Results showed that these assessments were not sufficient in capturing culturally specific life traumas of minority patients. Based on the literature review and analysis of the interviews with healthcare providers, a novel assessment tool, the Culturally Traumatic Events Questionnaire (CTEQ), was created to address the gaps that currently make up other mental health assessment tools used on minority patients.

This project was a teaching project for nursing students to educate them on how to cope with a patient death and what to expect when that situation comes in their career. The format for the education is a poster which will be displayed in the grace center. The idea came from the fact that student nurses are not exposed to a patient death and are also not prepared to cope with emotionally difficult situations like that. This poster stressed the importance of utilizing therapeutic coping mechanisms and mitigating negative ones. Also addressed were the responsibilities of postmortem care and cultural considerations regarding death. The main point of this project was to get student nurses to focus on developing positive coping skills prior to encountering a difficult situation in their career.
