This publication is a collection of suggestions and successes based on the thoughts and experiences of hospice providers in many settings throughout the United States.
Inclusion is more than demographics. Differences in gender, race, physical/other factors, sexual orientation, ethnicity, education and economics are components of inclusion. Unique perspectives, talents, insights and experiences of all people also shape business inclusion.
Cultural brokers help bridge gaps in health care beliefs and understanding between persons of non-dominant and dominant communities. Engaging faith leaders, clergy, community health workers, community leaders and others in conversations on beliefs, values and preferences is a powerful way to build trust, community awareness and education about end-of-life care in diverse communities.
As an effective hospice provider, you must be able to measure and respond to issues concerning service value and outcomes.
