Giving Bad News

Giving bad news is one of the hardest skills that a doctor must master. For trainees, it can be an especially daunting task. We have to juggle insecurities about the depth of our knowledge of the patient's illness, our emotional responses to the situation, our natural avoidance of difficult conversations, and our inexperience with the task. While there's no substitute for experience, a good framework and game plan are essential. Please join our invited experts in this discussion on delivering bad news and share your thoughts and questions about mastering this challenging skill.
