Learning objectives:

  • Improve the health outcomes for the Elderly Black Population
  • Increase empathy
  • Respect and understand the individual’s cultural beliefs regarding their health
  • Prevent judgmental behavior directed at patients
  • Prevent disparate care
  • Maintain patient dignity
