AbstractA clinical case is used to explore the ethical complexities of solid organ donation and transplantation within the Hmong community in the United States. Although many cultures can present various ethical issues, the challenges of the Hmong belief system are unique and distinctly complex. Ways for the medical team to integrate with the Hmong value system to attempt to create an environment of transcultural respect and appreciation are described.
