A new rule was added to the Public Health Code – General Rules. The rule defines implicit bias as “an attitude or internalized stereotype that affects an individual’s
perception, action, or decision making in an unconscious manner and often contributes to unequal treatment of people based on race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status, age, disability, or other characteristic.

Training on Implicit Bias is required as a condition for initial licensure or registration as well as license or registration renewal.
