Breaking Down the Walls: A Lunch & Learn Series

Enhancing the Practice of Medicine’s Culture & Inclusion Committee is pleased to offer new lunch and learn series:

Breaking Down the Walls

Series 1:
Diversity in end-of-life care: The right to die right.

As the population changes, health care providers need to incorporate the various cultures of their patients into practice. Team members who provide direct patient care have contact with patients spanning a wide variety of races, religions, and ethnicities and a wide array of other diversity dimensions such as age.

Providing culturally competent and sensitive care at the end of life requires health care providers to develop cultural awareness. Many cultural issues will affect patients and families at the end of life, and cultures may differ in their preferences and practices.

This is a free event with CME credit. Lunch provided for those who preregister.

Wed., Aug. 28, 11-12:30 p.m.
Greenville Memorial Hospital Administrative Board Room
701 Grove Road, Greenville, SC

We will conduct an interdisciplinary panel discussion to illuminate diversity at the end of life and provide tools that team members may use to facilitate and manage care. We will discuss perceived barriers and challenges as well as celebrate the beauty of diversity. Because this is an interactive program, participants will be encouraged to comment and ask questions.
