Ethical & Cultural Considerations for End of Life Care
At some point, all of us will face end-of-life decisions for ourselves or loved ones. Our clients are no exception. In response to an increasingly diverse population, we are offering a thought provoking workshop aimed at providing ethical standards to professionals who work with diverse cultures and ethnic groups who have their own unique style of planning and grieving loss.
The groups we will include are often marginalized or overlooked by mainstream society. These groups include the American Black Muslim, Yoruba, and Rastafarians (and more). We will explore and discuss how they need us to be present and ways to support them in end-of-life decisions and care.
Our objective is to provide you with a cultural competency framework and ethical standards to implement at your respective agency, hospice services, community groups and private practice settings.
Through lively group discussions, case studies and activities you will come away with an renewed understanding and ethical standards and practices to guide you in your work with culturally, ethnically and spiritually diverse groups and communities (specifically from the African Diaspora).
