At some point, all of us will face end-of-life decisions and care in our personal and professional lives; our clients are no exception. In response to this inevitable reality, we are offering a thought provoking workshop aimed at providing ethical standards and insights to professionals who work with diverse cultures and ethnic groups in end of life care.The groups that we will explore are often seen as being outside of mainstream America. Through lively group discussions, handouts, and small group activities, professionals will come away with an renewed understanding of ethical standards and practices when working cultural and spiritual diverse groups and communities.
Our objective is to provide cultural competency and training in ethical standards that professionals can implement in agency, community and private practice settings. We aim to educate participants on issues concerning ethical decisions making that impacts their personal values,cultural/religious traditions and practices affecting end of life care. We will explore how American Black Muslims, Rastafarians, Yoruba Traditions and others practice end of life rituals and traditions an our ethical responsibilities to them.
We will focus on the following ethical standards:
1. Ethical Responsibility to Clients in end of life care
2. Ethical Responsibility as Professionals in end of life care
3. Ethical Responsibility to Colleagues in end of life care
