Create a safe space for open discussions

Susan Gravier, Katherine Pryde

Research output: Other contribution


Good communication at the end of a person's life involves the ability to both give and receive information at a time where strong emotions and stress can affect even the most experienced clinician. It is important that patients have the information that they need to enable informed decision-making and that clinicians clearly understand patient and family preferences in developing goals of care. Communication skills develop with regular training and ongoing support.
