ABC of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Healthcare

Improve inclusion, for both patients and staff, in your healthcare environment

Fulfilment in personal and professional life is facilitated by feeling able to bring one’s complete self to work. The promotion of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) and its support in the workplace is crucial to achieving this. Diverse and inclusive teams are characterised by good people management, leading to better decision-making and improved performance which staff wellbeing and patient safety depend on. Though issues including racism, sexism and homophobia have roots in wider society, they also exist across healthcare systems worldwide. They contribute to problems with recruitment and retention of staff and can make patients reluctant to access the care they need and deserve.

The ABC of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Health summarises the key issues and the impacts on both patients and staff of excluding people from good healthcare solely on the basis of who they are. As well as considering impacts on individuals and teams, we consider also how inclusion can be improved for the benefit of everyone—all patients and all staff.

Topics include:

  • Racism in healthcare
  • Women in healthcare
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Disability, disparities and ableism in medicine
  • Teaching equality, diversity, and inclusion in healthcare

The authors are distinguished healthcare practitioners whose personal and professional lives have been enriched by the diversity of all they meet through their work and who are passionate about ensuring positive change for colleagues and patients. This book aims to contribute to important discussions about how to ensure systemic change that will enable an inclusive culture by recognising and celebrating diversity. ABC of Equality, Diversity and Include (EDI) in Healthcare is essential reading for students and professionals who want to champion inclusivity and fulfilment in a workplace environment.
