Providing culturally-congruent care is key to the delivery of person-centered care.
Our Building Bridges workshop is a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals and advocates to explore their own cultural biases, the role culture and ethnicity play at end of life, and role-play culturally sensitive discussions about palliative medicine and end-of-life care with patients and their families.
Join us on August 18 to learn about the culture of healthcare while investigating your own behaviors.
