Activity Steps


Note: ASHA CEUs cannot be reported to ASHA unless your ASHA member number is included in your profile.

A scoping review was conducted to identify if unique considerations are understood among Asian American subgroups. This community of color is one whose distinct priorities, expectations and decision-making processes are poorly understood. For palliative programs to be effective, a community's unique perspectives and experiences must be understood. The authors affirm that academic researchers and clinical educators need to use data-driven strategies to advocate for equitable access to and utilization of quality palliative care, especially among diverse populations.
