Thank you for bringing this to forefront. You described generations and decades of what I have lived and witnessed in both my families and those of friends and acquaintances. None of what was presented would shock most African Americans. Excellent presentation!

I am impressed with the rigor of your qualitative methods (coming from someone who has done quantitative reserach & collaborated with qualitative researchers).

Thank you Pamela. I do find conversations about end of life different depending on the culture of the patient and family. No two are ever the same!

Appreciate the presentation. I had the same challenges with African American families who had hospitalized loved ones. Appreciate the data and the examples to use.
