PhD student Peiyuan Zhang and colleagues have a new paper published in Journal of Applied Gerontology that explores perceived barriers and sociocultural factors associated with ACP conversations among Chinese American older adults. A purposive sample of 281 community-dwelling older Chinese Americans aged 55 years or older in Arizona and Maryland completed a survey in 2018. Hierarchical logistic regression models were conducted. 26.5% of the participants had engaged in ACP conversations with family. Lower perceived barriers and sociocultural factors (i.e., length of stay in the U.S. and English language proficiency) were positively associated with ACP conversations. Social support had a significant moderation effect. Findings highlighted the importance of language services and social support in facilitating ACP discussions among older Chinese immigrants. Effective strategies are needed to reduce the barriers to ACP at various levels for older Chinese American populations. More details can be found at; Zhang, P., Sun, F., & Hirsch, J. (2023).
