This webinar is part of the Palliative Care Institute's Care Across Culture Series.

Our own cultural identities and belief systems impact how we interact and engage with the patients and families we serve. This session will explore how unconscious bias and racism can impact health equity in palliative care. On completion of this session, participants should be able to:

1. Identify at least 3 ways that inequity impacts palliative care patients
2. Discuss 3 unique challenges and opportunities in addressing health equity in palliative care
3. Identify 3 actions providers can take to promote health equity for their patients
4. Identify 3 actions providers can take to promote health equity on their teams or at the institutional level
