Understand the role of cultural diversity in providing compassionate end-of-life care

The Building Bridges workshop by the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California is a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to explore your own cultural biases and apply what you’ve learned toward your work with seriously-ill patients.

Learn about the “culture” of healthcare while investigating your own cultural biases and behaviors. Explore the role culture and ethnicity play at end of life, and role-play how to have culturally sensitive discussions about palliative medicine and end-of-life care with patients and their families.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Compare and contrast the culture of health care and the culture of end-of-life care
  • Discuss the prominent cultural features of your work environment and how these relate to end-of-life care
  • Define cultural competency, cultural humility and cultural dignity in the context of health care
  • Critique your own cultural biases
