New Multicultural Videos Showcased
Through a grant by Aligning Forces for Quality (AF4Q), a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s signature effort to lift the overall quality of health care in targeted communities, reduce racial and ethnic disparities, and provide models for national reform, Latino/Hispanic, Hmong, and Somali videos were produced.
All videos were created by diverse multicultural leaders within the Latino/Hispanic, Hmong, and Somali communities. Each was designed for use by healthcare professionals, patients/clients, and community members in three distinct settings:
- Health systems and clinics;
- Comfortable, trusted home environments with individuals of all ages and families;
- Community settings including faith and multicultural communities, schools/education facilities, skilled and assisted nursing facilities, and other locations.
Each video has subtitles in English and the respective language of each audience. Viewers can watch trailers and videos online with a new “How to Use” guide. Hard copy DVDs are also available. The goal of these new tools is to reduce advance care planning and end-of-life health disparities through new multicultural friendly resources that are designed for intergenerational communities.
