Stratus Video Topics: Familismo

The Cultural Practice of Group Decision Making

Familismo is the Hispanic cultural practice of involving the entire family in healthcare decision making. The U.S. healthcare system is very much built to treat patients as individuals, and therefore healthcare providers may be confused by this group behavior among their Spanish-speaking patients. The resources on this page offer tips for understanding Familismo, and for making sure that meaningful communication between the patient and provider still takes place.

The webinar streaming here discusses the definition of Familismo, real-life examples of the practice, and tips for healthcare providers navigating the group decision-making dynamic.
