Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
How does perceived discrimination (e.g., unfair treatment because of one's race, gender, or class), on the part of patients, and unconscious bias, on the part of healthcare providers, impact patient health and interactions with the healthcare system?

Can health disparities caused, in part, by perceived discrimination be reduced through patient-level interventions designed to increase psychological resiliency?

Can health disparities be reduced through interventions targeting provider-level and system-level bias?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Perceived discrimination - Unconscious bias - Health and healthcare disparities - Pain management - Patient experiences/satisfaction with care

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Primary data collection (quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews)
Secondary data analysis (e.g., electronic health records; publicly available data)
Indirect measurement of bias (e.g., Implicit Association Test)
Randomized controlled trials
Multilevel statistical modeling, longitudinal analysis
