Death is a universal and inevitable event that, of course, crosses all ethnic, cultural, and religious lines. Yet, each individual perceives and experiences death differently. Culture, religion and spirituality influence end-of-life decisions; therefore, it is vital for those who provide direct care for dying patients and their families to have general knowledge on the culture and religion/spiritual faiths of the individuals they provide care for.
This curriculum is designed for direct care hospital staff who work with older adults in select hospitals in Los Angeles county. The intent of this curriculum is to provide the participant with information on cultural and religious/spiritual beliefs and practices; further, it is the expectation that the knowledge acquired will be applied to improve patient care.
