1) Compare and contrast the culture of health care and the culture of end-of-life care
2) Discuss the prominent cultural features of your work environment and how these relate to end-of-life care
3) Define cultural competency, cultural humility and cultural dignity in the context of health care
4) Critique your own cultural biasesWho Should Attend
