Vital Talk

Vital Talk has been at the forefront of improving serious illness communication a few decades now. Communications tools created by an accomplished faculty empower clinicians to communicate about serious illness empathetically and effectively, enabling them to feel less burnout in the process.

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Vital Talk created a “COVID Ready Communication Playbook” to provide some practical advice on how to talk about some of the difficult topics related to COVID-19. Here you can find tips for “What you say” “When they say” in a variety of topics including screening, preferences, triaging, admitting, deciding, resourcing, notifying, good bye and so much more including “talking maps for contingency and crisis”.
