HFA’s 2009 teleconference, Diversity and End-of-Life Care, will examine how diversity influences end-of-life decision making and the impact that culture has at the time of death and during bereavement. The program will also discuss the challenges that may occur when culture considerations may cause ethical concerns or moral distress.
