Advanced Directives & End-of-Life Issues for African Americans

Episode 12: Bridging the Gap: Conversations with Dr. Hall

1.00 CME

Literature consistently shows lower engagement in advance-care-planning among ethnic and racial minority groups when compared to Whites. A recent study with a nationally representative sample reported that only 18% of ethnic minority participants completed advance directives compared to 34% of White respondents. Studies in hospital settings also found lower rates of discussion about advance-care-planning with a physician during the hospitalization among racial/ethnic minority patients when compared to Whites. Given that engagement in advance-care-planning and end-of-life discussions positively influences the quality of life near its end, a lower engagement in these meaningful discussions among ethnic minorities can lead to inadequate care at the last stage of life, exacerbating earlier health disparities. There are also significant differences in the treatment of pain in African Americans, as well as the perception of pain, and potential for abuse.
