Hospice is a difficult discussion for most clinicians and patients.  It is further complicated by individual belief systems influenced by cultural and religious values and experiences.  Family dynamics also play an important role in treatment and end-of-life decisions for loved ones with advanced and terminal disease.  Culturally diverse populations experience disparities in quality and access to healthcare.  This webinar will delve into the barriers to end-of-life care among these communities.  It will also address the different needs and preferences when building relationships to provide optimal end-of-life care for patients and families from all cultural backgrounds.
