Implicit bias in stroke care: a recurring old problem in the rising incidence of young stroke.

Bhat A, Mahajan V, Wolfe N. J Clin Neurosci. 2021;85:27-35.  

Misdiagnosis, variation in treatment of stroke and gaps in secondary prevention in young patients can result in adverse outcomes. This article discusses the possible causes of implicit bias in stroke care in this population, the effects of bias on patient outcomes, and interventions to circumvent implicit bias.
