Facilitator’s Training

The SpeakSooner® Facilitators Training Program supports professional dissemination and use of the Center for Communication in Medicine’s signature tool, SpeakSooner®: A Patient’s Guide to Difficult Conversations.


The language of medicine is not the same as the language of the patient’s experience of illness. Often this disconnect means that communication with patients living with a serious prognosis is impeded at the very juncture when understanding the risks and benefits of treatment options is most critical. Through video presentations and guided interactive discussions, our workshops help healthcare professionals identify communication barriers and reflect on their role in facilitating effective discussions, helping to make conversations more meaningful for their patients and themselves.
