Purpose: The needs to grow, connect, and contribute can be seen across ethnicities, socioeconomic levels, and the lifespan, including at the end of life. Palliative care providers can benefit from understanding these psychosocial needs and how salient they are among underserved and ethnic minority patients with advanced disease. Towards this end, this webinar will describe data of an ongoing psychosocial needs assessment of cancer patients from the disadvantaged and ethnically diverse community of Bronx, NY. It will also present a brief overview of the BOLD Cancer Wellness Program developed in response to this needs assessment.


  1. Describe salient psychological and social needs among advanced stage, underserved cancer patients
  2. Review assessment tools for identifying psychosocial needs and interests
  3. Discuss strategies to support patients’ needs for growth, connection, and contribution at end of life
