Many health care workers, such as physicians, nurses and chaplains, have difficulty in initiating difficult conversations regarding decision-making; especially at the end of life. The lack of these communications skills often result in delayed decisions, complicated cases and futile treatment.

This presentation is derived from a collaborative effort by social workers, nurses and chaplains who studied together to improve interdisciplinary communications and improve the quality of end-of-life care.
