Having Hard Conversations in Loving Ways

A diagnosis of cancer forces patients and families to confront issues that can be ignored on ordinary days. Some people think that not talking about these issues avoids the pain, but patients often will discuss these hard questions and concerns with healthcare staff. They report that avoiding those topics with their loved ones often adds to the burden patients have to carry alone. This session will offer ideas about having these hard conversations in ways that ease the unnecessary suffering that the burden of silence causes. Information about Palliative Care and Hospice will be included in this shared dialogue. Workshop will be led by Chaplain Dorothy Pryblyski. Free dinner will be provided.
