Cultural differences

A moving blog this week from Ann Gow on the Ayrshire Health Blog. Ann shares with us a recent sad time for her family following the death of an Aunt. Ann describes how due to culture, alongside the wishes of her Aunt, the family reacted to the death, and how that other cultures may react differently to death. Ann considers how healthcare professionals can become patient centred in death as well as in care.

Working in local gov, managing a frontline service for families. I love Shropshire, love family and love information and blog about all three. There is also the occasional mention of cake and caek.
