Minoritized patients who experience implicit or overt discrimination in healthcare report receiving lower quality of care and may avoid seeking care in the future altogether. In this study, patients who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and/or Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) describe their experiences of unfair treatment and discrimination in healthcare. Four themes related to immediate reactions and six themes related to long-term coping emerged.
