Last Rights: Respecting Diversity at the End of Life (encore edition)

"We act as if there is one definition of good end of life care. And I would argue there is no one definition. In the end, it’s going to be many definitions."

In the American health care system, "good end-of-life care" often supports the white middle-class, but people of diverse religions, languages and races often have very different needs and expectations. On this edition, producer Claire Schoen looks at how miscommunication, stereotyping and racism influence health care for people of color as they approach death.
