Honoring Choices Across Cultures: End of Life and Advanced Care Planning

Date of Review: June, 2020

This resource, from the University of Minnesota, is an entire Canvas course in a video lecture-based format and teaches clinical learners communication skills in advanced care planning and end of life care for diverse populations using a cultural humility framework. This course is intended for all clinicians to support to patients and their families while making end of life care plans. The course is divided into five modules. There are video lectures from experts throughout and three separate interactive case-studies in the final module. This resource integrates the framework and models of cultural humility and compassion into its structure, thus facilitating useful advice for direct discussion with patients on sensitive topics. Although registration is needed for the course, it is free of charge, enabling greater access to course content. Overall It is a feasible and well-organized resource for applying cultural humility and compassion in patient interactions. –Ashti Doobay-Persaud, MD, NCEAS
