PalliTALK is a high-quality and well-respected simulation-based workshop designed for practitioners who want to dramatically increase their comfort and confidence in common and challenging clinical situations with seriously ill patients and families.

Participants come away with an individualized learning plan and increased self-awareness and self-efficacy related to their communication skills.

Topics include serious news discussions, dealing with conflict, high-risk shared decision making with Best Case/Worst Case, major transitions in care, family meetings and responding to emotion.
