Learn about end-of-life care through a cultural lens on April 7

March 30, 2016
Area(s) of Interest: Cultural Competency End of Life Issues 

Physicians are invited to attend Building Bridges: End-of-Life Care Through a Cultural Lens, a one-day seminar hosted by the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC). This event is a unique opportunity to learn about the “culture” of health care while investigating how your own cultural biases and behaviors may influence the care you provide.

Participants will learn how to compare and contrast the culture of health care and end-of-life care; discuss the prominent cultural features of your work environment and how they relate to end-of-life care; define cultural competency, cultural humility and cultural dignity in the context of health care; and critique your own cultural biases.

This event is scheduled for April 7 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Nonprofit Innovation Center in Sacramento. The cost for CCCC members is $199; non-member registration is $249. For more information or to register, click here.
