Abstract Diversity in the US population is increasing, and evaluating the quality of culturally sensitive hospice care is important. A survey design was used to collect data from 743 patients enrolled in hospice or their family members or caregivers. Race/ethnicity was not significantly associated with any of the hospice interventions or outcomes. Patients were less likely to be satisfied with the overall hospice care (OR = 0.23, 95\% CI = 0.065-0.796, P = .021) compared to other type of respondents. Satisfaction with emotional support was substantially associated with the increased likelihood of satisfaction with pain management (OR = 3.82, 95\% CI = 1.66-8.83, P = .002), satisfaction with other symptom management (OR = 6.17, 95\% CI = 2.80-13.64, P < .001), and of overall satisfaction with hospice care (OR = 20.22, 95\% CI = 8.64-47.35, P < .001).
