ELNEC Geriatric Module 5: Cultural & Spiritual Considerations

 

Because cultural and spiritual factors influence the end-of-life care of older adults and their families, it is important to assess and support both cultural and spiritual considerations. Intervening to reduce spiritual distress and assure culture competency requires an interdisciplinary approach. In this course, you will learn about cultural and spiritual considerations in palliative care. In addition, you will learn about the assessment of culture and spirituality as well as interventions that support personhood and quality of life at the end of life.
