On Wednesday, July 12, 2017 the Vermont Center for Independent Living will host Center for Communication in Medicine’s (CCM) co-founders Dr. Bernard Bandman and Celia Engel Bandman for a program, “How To Improve Communication with Doctors”. The program will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 108 School Street in Bennington, Vermont from 1-3pm. The program is free and open to the public.
SpeakSooner programs introduce the Difficult Conversations Toolkit, a guide developed by CCM to help patients and families identify and communicate questions and concerns about risks and benefits of treatment options, quality of life considerations and supportive care needs – beginning sooner in the course of illness.
An attendee at a recent program said, “CCM offers the community a priceless gift. There is an overwhelming need and thirst for your expertise.” Patients, families and healthcare providers are invited.
