NURS 623 Cultural Perspectives in Hospice and Palliative Care 3.0 Credits

Culture plays an important role in an individual's view of death and in a health care provider's provision of care at the end of life. This course will explore culture--the learned behaviors, beliefs, and values that define an individual's experience--and how it affects views of health, illness, dying, and life after death. The health care provider will develop skills necessary to recognize, assess, and address psychological, social/religious perspectives, and cultural taboos, realizing that different cultures may require significantly different approaches in order to provide a meaningful context for dying.
