Symposium - other

The Dying Truth – Communication in Advanced Disease

If communication is the quintessential human skill and death is a universal experience, you might think that people would communicate about a terminal illness well. Particularly when a highly trained health professional is part of the communication. Reality does not always bear this out. Communication at the end of life is recognised as something we need to work on.

Are you a health professional involved in difficult conversations?

This symposium will look at communication in the setting of advanced disease and how we can do it better. We will look at what are the barriers, how we can overcome them, what formal training programmes might offer, what cultural and language differences add. And what is Truth – how should it be handled in a health setting?
