With our ever-expanding landscape of medical advancements, our elderly or chronically ill populations have many routes to extend life longer than in previous generations. We insert and bypass, dialyze and reconstruct. But what happens when we cannot fix, heal or reverse? Palliative care aims to relieve pain and suffering and increase quality of life while ushering the most vulnerable patients to a path of comfort that encompasses their physical, mental and spiritual well-being. While palliative care and hospice care are readily available, populations of color are less apt to receive this high-quality specialized care at or towards end of life. With likely many factors at play, we will explore how trust, or lack thereof, as well as misconceptions and failed communication ultimately lead to this disparity.
- Describe what comprises End of Life Care (Palliative and Hospice Care).
- Explore differences in rates of diagnoses of BIPOC populations (vs non-Bipoc populations).
- Review utilization trends of hospice/end of life care (Bipoc vs non-Bipoc).
- Explore how lack of quality end of life care effects this population.
- Review historical trends that have led to mistrust and disparities.
- Explore how religion can be a barrier and bridge to advance care planning and end of life communication.
- Explore ways in which providers can begin to break the cycle of disparities at end of life.
