Subject: Making tough decisions when delivering cross-culture care - Wed. 6:00 - RSVP
What do you tell a patient with cancer when her family asks you to withhold that information from her? Can you deliver a child when asked to do so in a rural East African clinic? What should you
do if you disagree with your local supervisor’s clinical decision?
Discuss the tough decisions people make in cross-cultural healthcare environments on a daily basis.
Please join us for a
dinner discussion centered on several real-world case studies organized by the
Healthcare Living Learning Community and
MEDLIFE, this WEDNESDAY evening. RSVP required.
