Cultural Aspects of Care
Rarely is a primary care practice today made up of homogenous populations. Widely ranging cultural backgrounds are present in most communities, so providers are challenged to be culturally aware on all levels. Serious illness and terminal illness present even more complex challenges. This course gives you the cultural sensitivity tools, suggestions, and approaches for patients and their loved ones during stressful illness.
