Difficult Conversations Workbook

As a patient, your best treatment path can only be discovered through open communication. The interactive Difficult Conversations Workbook was developed to prepare patients facing chronic or incurable conditions to become more active partners in crucial decisions about care. The topics covered in this workbook were inspired by unscripted conversations with five patients living with incurable cancer. These stories, presented in short video segments, serve as a framework for guided writing exercises to help you identify and communicate your needs and goals to healthcare providers and loved ones.

“The patient should guide their life, not the doctor... but you’ve got to communicate what you want to do."
