This 2-hour online course offers key information about why and how to provide culturally inclusive palliative care exemplified in a series of videos. You will meet the Garcia family to learn how their cultural and life circumstances may impact their understanding and approach to their child’s medical condition and death. You will see how communication styles of healthcare providers can enhance…or detract from… patient and family understanding.
We hope to challenge your current thinking, 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 be aware of 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.
