  • Describe two situations where skillfully discussing these topics (within professional boundaries) can promote quality care

WEBINAR DETAILS

What are your top priorities when caring for seriously ill people? Is it to provide high-quality patient and family care? Can this be achieved even when challenging topics arise? This webinar will review common situations when it is and isn’t appropriate to discuss personal beliefs, including religion and politics, and how to do so within professional constraints. Learn skills and interventions that create professional boundaries and how to create the best environment for high-quality care through communication – both at the bedside and in the office.
