A review is done on how the palliative care program provides care to patients, family and community in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner, and how it is a goal of the palliative care program to always improve cultural competency. An overview is provided on how the interdisciplinary team assesses and addresses spiritual, religious, and existential dimensions of care. Also explored is how the team provides religious, spiritual and cultural practices as identified as important to the patient and family, particularly during and after the time of death.
