Navigating Cultural Differences in Decision Making: Understanding Hispanic Family Systems and Cultural Constructs
The Hispanic population in the US has grown from 7 million in 1970 to 60.6 million today, and is projected to double by 2050. The number of those over the age of 65 is expected to increase > 200% by 2030, with cancer being the leading cause of death. In this presentation, Dr Moya will talk about the importance of providing culturally-sensitive care to the Hispanic / Latino population, framed within the Hispanic cultural constructs of familismo, personalismo, respeto y simpatia, machismo and marianismo, and fatalismo and espiritualismo. This presentation is for everyone involved in healthcare.
