Medical Mistrust: From Past to Present - Shawn Demmons, Dr. Oni Blackstock, Dr. Cynthia A. Gomez - EP 19

Do you trust the healthcare system to provide YOU with the highest quality of care when you’re in need?

This is a crucial question as medical mistrust is associated with negative health outcomes.

COVID-19 has illuminated the deep inequities in healthcare access and health outcomes by race, gender, socio-economic status, and place. The medical mistrust experienced by many people of color, particularly among Black and Latino/a/x communities, creates enormous barriers.

The time to remedy the failures of public health, our healthcare system, the research enterprise, and health policy-making is long overdue. Research shows implicit bias impacts providers’ interactions with patients and has negative effects on the health of people of color. Centering the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous, Latino/a/x and other people of color, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ people is necessary as we course correct toward building and repairing relationships, fostering trust, and being trustworthy.

This is the first of a special two-part conversation on understanding and addressing medical mistrust.
