Helping Families to be "Conversation Ready"
To help raise awareness around end-of-life care issues, Care New England has developed a wealth of information regarding palliative and hospice care, including videos Q&As with “conversation ready” clinicians and with Kim Hogg, who discussed the proactive approach that helped her family cope prior to her mother passing away earlier this year. We've also created a “Conversation” info graphic focused on how to start these difficult discussions.
