Beyond the Burden: Disparities in End of Life Care

Mar 15, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

From the point of view of caregiving, the burden is likely to increase in years to come because there will likely be fewer “carers” and more people dying with complex care needs. How can we examine social care at the end of life and deliver community integrated and person-care for both patients, care givers and families? How can we ensure that all people, regardless of gender, race, age, income level or languages spoken have access to quality end of life care? Physician biases, systemic barriers and patient disenfranchisement lead to inadequate pain treatment, miscommunication and cost burdens on families in their most vulnerable times. Learn about the key roles providers, organizations and activists play in family advocacy, and how leading care providers are blazing new paths forward.
