    Cultural & Linguistic Barriers in Advance Care Planning for Chinese American Immigrant Seniors

  • Abstract

    Advance care planning involves discussions of patients’ personal values, life goals, and preferences regarding future medical care. It is a particularly involving and challenging topic among the Chinese American immigrant seniors due to their distinct culture and language preferences. This study interviewed 20 key informants in different healthcare settings to identify barriers and recommendations in delivering advanced care planning to Chinese Americans. Cultural and language barriers are extracted and discussed in detail in this poster. By shining lights on these cultural and language barriers, this study hopes to disseminate potential strategies.
