Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

There is a reason why you do what you do at the bedside, and why you occasionally question routine clinical practice—even if you don’t know what that reason is. This fun session highlights the top six to 10 studies published since NTI 2021 and considers whether the new data should impact current clinical practice. This session is sure to inspire lively discussion and stimulating ideas for nurses to take back to their workplace.


  • Identify current controversial clinical topics and discuss the types of research questions that may arise.
  • Describe the latest studies which advance critical and progressive care nursing by increasing understanding of current science and evidence.
  • Discuss translation strategies, research implications and areas for further study based on AACN’s priorities and presented studies.
