Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest COVID-19 Webinar Series

Honoring Choices PNW, in collaboration with Ariadne Labs and VitalTalk, is holding a series of free webinars on communication skills and tools that physicians, advanced practitioners, and other members of the health care team can use as you respond to the COVID-19 crisis.

The first webinar will be held on Friday, April 10 at 12pm. Register here. (for healthcare and HCPNW program partners)

In the first webinar, Dr. Tony Back from VitalTalk will provide practical advice on how to talk about difficult topics related to COVID-19. Building on their experience studying and teaching communication for two decades, VitalTalk has drawn on their networks to crowdsource the challenges and match them with advice from some of the best clinicians we know. If you know their work, you’ll recognize some familiar themes, and you’ll also find new material.
