Providing Culturally Sensitive Care at the End of Life


   

Thursday, June 15, 2017

 3:00pm-4:30pm EST

Asbury Methodist Village Rosborough Center

409 Russell Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877

 

Presented by Rabbi Gary S. Fink, D.Min, Senior VP of Counseling and Family Support

 Continuing education

 1.5 contact hour for nurses, social workers, and nursing home administrators/assisted living managers

*This module was presented as one of four modules at Montgomery Hospice's 2015 conference titled "Different Voices, Shared Journeys: Providing Culturally Sensitive Care."

 

Program Description

Discussing dying and end of life care as well as funeral plans, though difficult, can reduce family distress when a death occurs. Discussing final wishes and preferences with a patient, resident, or client can also provide peace of mind and a better quality of life for the individual when death is near.  Cultural barriers, however, can prevent open discussion of death and dying and funeral planning when a loved one is declining. This session will provide insight, tools and strategies for those who strive to support individuals of all cultures at the end of life.
