2022 UPMC Hospice & Palliative Care Symposium-It’s About Living: Building A Culture Of Diversity & Inclusion
As a result of this educational program, we hope that physicians and nurses will better understand the psychosocial aspects of the African American, veteran, LGBTQIA+ and faith-based communities and the impact of their “lived experiences” effects their overall healthcare experience. Conversely, through the teachings of this course, social workers and clergy will better appreciate the struggles these same communities face when accessing and receiving comprehensive health care services and they make decisions on receiving (or not receiving) certain medical interventions. Ideally, collectively, we hope these healthcare disciplines will learn how to best collaborate and utilize a team approach to best serve our patients and provide them with a true integrated, wholistic plan of care and gather a stronger appreciation for the disparities these populations face when receiving care. Finally, by way of this course content, we believe MD’s, RN’s and MSW’s can learn that through working together as a team, we can mitigate many of the social determinates of health these marginalized groups face.
1. Explain the supportive services hospice provides to the veteran population and faith-based community.
2. Describe the benefits of earlier access to hospice and palliative care for the African American Community.
3. Identify 3 approaches to effectively communicate serious illness to members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
