Cultural Assumptions About End-of-Life Care

Loading...
"This program highlights the UVa Center for Palliative Care's ongoing research, including consideration of what constitutes a 'good death' for persons of different cultural backgrounds. One Uva study suggests that the dominant model in biomedical ethics - which emphasizes autonomy and self-determination - may not be the way certain groups, especially minority and ethnic groups, think about their care at the end of life. The presenters (Dr. Carlos Gomez and Dr. Amy Gennari) discuss culture-based variations among UVa hospice patients and examine the implications of this research for planning for the future of end-of-life care."--Flyer.
