Cross Cultural Palliative Care: Finding Alignment and Tools
This webinar is part of the Palliative Care Institute's Care Across Culture Webinar Series.

Description and Objectives: Underserved communities often underutilize hospice and Palliative care services at end-of-life. This session will discuss some of the cultural barriers to Palliative Care using cases from various immigrant and refugee communities. We will also highlight how common local approaches to end of life discussions and care may be rooted in Western or Eurocentric values in ways that are often taken for granted by practitioners. We will discuss ways to reduce this bias, build rapport and alignment in these communities, and provide culturally specific end of life care to this growing population of patients in need. At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize how some commonly accepted practice fundamentals of Palliative Care may be culturally specific

2. Identify potential sources of conflict and marginalization in cross cultural Palliative Care

3. Engage collaboratively with patients and families from certain refugee communities re: Palliative Care

4. Develop methods for approaching cross cultural end of life cases which may reduce conflict and promote alignment and patient centered care.

The webinar speaker is Dr. Jody Waldron, Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington in the Department of Medicine and Medical Director, Harborview Hospital, Outpatient Palliative Care Clinic.
