Reducing Health Disparities at End-of-Life
This project will test interactive, web-based training materials designed for health care providers to learn or improve cross-cultural communication skills in discussing end-of-life issues such as giving bad news, communicating with patients and families who ask for therapies that you feel are futile, advance care planning, do-not-resuscitate orders, conducting a family conference and introducing hospice. This project will evaluate the effect of the web-based training on health care providers' cultural competence in discussing end-of-life issues.
