Beyond the Burden: Disparities in End of Life Care

How can we examine social care at the end of life and deliver community integrated and person-care for patients, caregivers, and families? How can we ensure that all people, regardless of gender, race, age, socioeconomic status or language 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 during their most vulnerable times. Learn about the key roles providers, organizations, family members and activists play in end of life advocacy and how leading care providers are blazing new paths forward.
