Ease the difficult conversations around prognosis and end-of-life care by listening to fellow family physicians’ stories about what it is like to have the conversation. You can learn from your colleagues how to communicate effectively and compassionately with patients about their treatment options, including possible medical interventions and palliative care. CAFP is dedicated to ensuring that both family physicians and patients feel comfortable discussing these difficult topics and hopes to continue to gather physician voices. Start an end-of-life conversation today.
