"Advanced care planning by South Asian Indian-Americans: Barriers and Facilitators" By Dr. Kavita Radhakrishnan

Advance care planning (ACP) is a process that prepares individuals to plan ahead for future medical decisions by helping them clarify their values, goals, and preferences. South Asian Indian-Americans (SAIAs), one of the fastest growing immigrant communities in the U.S. have traditionally resisted participation in ACP discussions. Encouraging SAIAs to engage in ACP can empower them to communicate their care preferences before they become too incapacitated to express such preferences. The speaker will present results from two studies conducted in Austin TX on the barriers to and facilitators for SAIAs to engage in behaviors related advanced care planning and use of a conversation game to stimulate ACP-related behaviors in the SAIA community.
