This 90-minutes online course offers key information about why and how to provide culturally inclusive palliative care for older adults with chronic illness. In video vignettes, we will follow the story of a Latino patient who fits a common disease profile. We will see how culturally competent interactions can improve patient understanding and the implementation of supportive palliative care. We will identify strategies and tools to address the challenges.
We hope to challenge your current thinking and help prepare, and inspire you, to communicate effectively and to offer the best possible culturally inclusive care.
Yes, understanding the key points is important. But more important is to observe the effects of culturally inclusive communication…and your personal response to the interactions you are witnessing in the videos.
To help you complete the course, we have provided a workbook. Please download and print it before you begin.
