Diversity and End-of-Life Care


Diversity and End-of-Life Care

Program Details
Diversity and End-of-Life Care will examine how diversity influences end-of-life decision making and the impact that culture has at the time of death and during bereavement. One of the goals of the teleconference is to increase sensitivity by helping professionals acknowledge how their own cultural values and assumptions influence the delivery of care. The program will include a special examination of hospice care and diversity, including how hospices are reaching out to diverse groups and incorporating traditional practices and alternative therapies. The program will also discuss the challenges that may occur when culture considerations may cause ethical concerns or moral distress.
