September 12 & 13
8:00am – 5:00pm
Thanks to a generous grant from the Vera Z. Dwyer Charitable Trust, the IU School of Medicine and Center for Education and Advance Care Planning will hold a comprehensive two-day workshop at the Center for Hospice Care’s Mishawaka Campus. There is no charge to the physicians attending or their sponsoring organizations, however seats are limited.
IU Talk, based on the highly respected VITALtalk program, gives clinicians the constructive communication skills they need when navigating conversations about serious illness. Research shows that effective communication reduces unnecessary treatments and suffering for patients and their loved ones. It also boosts patient-centered care.
To date IU Talk has held over a dozen multi-day courses for fellowship and residency training programs including critical care, oncology, nephrology, cardiology, and internal medicine. In addition, over 200 faculty physicians have participated in the program’s half-day sessions. This includes physicians and advanced practice providers from Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgery, Obstetrics-Gynecology, and Neurology.
