Viki Kind is known as “The People’s Bioethicist,” because she is a rare individual who bridges two worlds, that of the health care professional and of the patient/family struggling to make the right decisions. Viki lectures across the United States teaching professionals to have integrity, compassion and to improve care through better communication and ethical frameworks.

1. Define the cultural barriers in senior care.
2. Learn the components of an ethnographic interview to evaluate the person’s cultural needs.
3. Demonstrate communication techniques to improve cultural understanding and care.
4. Explore how our own perspective may be influencing our practice
