Beyond Tolerance: How to Build Cultural Humility in Hospice Teams
Presented by hospice consultant, trainer, and author Rev. Dr. Carla Cheatham
Webinar On Demand
Your ability to connect with patients and families of all cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs is more than mere political correctness. It will make or break the trust and connection necessary for you to be effective in your work. Research indicates that simply improving knowledge about groups different from your own may impact attitudes, but only slightly. The route to true change is intergroup contact and the resulting self-reflection and change in perspective that it brings.
