End-of-Life Ethics: Cultural Competency

Using a case study approach, this webinar will address patient and family care at life’s end through the lens of cultural competency, offering awareness, skills, and knowledge that take clinical practice a step beyond the commonly accepted concept of cultural humility.

Cases will include situations familiar to clinicians, including issues of family conflict in end-of-life decision making, a distrust of the healthcare system due to historical inequities around access to care, and helping dying patients cope with pain and suffering in the face of long-held beliefs.

Live on December 12, 2023 at noon ET and available on demand for one year
Length: 90 minutes
Continuing Education: 1.5 CE hours included with registration.
