The Influence of Culture in End-of-Life Decision Making
April 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
In their research, scholars have documented racial and ethnic differences in end-of-life care preferences, which have translated into cultural barriers. For the past 5 years, there has been little to no change in the rates of utilization of hospice care among Black and Latino patients, according to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Join us for an interesting talk where Dr. Bullock will present possible explanations for racial disparities in end-of-life decision-making using a study that examined data from Black and White community-dwelling residents and how end-of-life care practitioners can be more culturally competent by understanding differences in attitudes and behaviors in advance care planning. Social Work CEU’s will be provided. (1.5 units) Event is free and open to the public. Free parking available in Lot D-3 under the IH-35 bridge.
