Multicultural Resources

Minnesota Network of Hospice & Palliative Care is committed to increasing education about and access to hospice and palliative care for all Minnesotans. MNHPC has partnered with numerous community organizations to create and distribute resources with the goal of raising awareness and answering questions about hospice, palliative care, and advance care planning within diverse cultural communities across the state. We also seek to raise awareness among health care organizations and care providers and encourage conversation about cultural values related to caring for individuals experiencing serious illness or the end of life.

The Hospice Stories Project

Funded by The Saint Paul Foundation, F.R. Bigelow Foundation, UCare Foundation and a Live Well at Home Grant from Department of Human Services (DHS).

In 2014, MNHPC formed a community partnership with ECHO-TPT, SoLaHmo and West Side Community Health Services. Together the partnership is working to increase awareness about the values that impact the choices individuals and families make at the end of life and to introduce hospice care as an important option.

The goal of the project is to expand resources and information about end-of-life care to Somali, Latino and Hmong communities. We also aim to raise awareness among hospice organizations and care providers about the values, beliefs and traditions that are important to individuals from various cultures and open the discussion around what it means to approach this work with cultural humility.

Serving Diverse Communities 

In 2017, MNHPC convened six stakeholder meetings where a diverse group of health care providers and community members discussed providing culturally and linguistically appropriate serious illness and end-of-life care. The content of the discussions were captured in a report composed by Rajean Moone and Alana Wright of Moone Consulting, Inc.
