There is a universally acknowledged truth that appreciating differences in others helps us better understand ourselves. According to Noble Peace Prize winner Kofi Annan, “We may have different religions, different languages and different colored skin, but we all belong to the same human race.” The same is true for End-of-Life experiences: it is something we will all experience. It is what makes us human.

Passare’s book explains the importance of understanding how different cultures approach End-of-Life events and this allows people to properly comfort and pay respect to friends and family who embrace different belief systems. For instance, a Buddhist who gains insight into Catholic rituals will be able bridge the cultural differences to better comfort a grieving Catholic friend.

“Understanding Cultural Diversity at End-of-Life” not only explains what cultural diversity is and why it is important, but it also reviews specific ethnic and religious approaches to End-of-Life events. It provides a broad perspective of how African, Asian, North American and South American cultures as well as Buddhist, Hindu, Hispanic, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim, Protestant, Catholic faiths may consider End-of-Life events. This can help people understand specific belief systems of the grieving friends and family.

The book also examines how particular cultural groups manage End-of-Life services including: attitudes on Advance Healthcare Directives, approaches to pain management, different perspectives on hospital care and home care; as well as distinct funeral practices and ceremonies.
