    Session Description:

    Words have the power to support, comfort, hurt, and harm, particularly when the listener is living with a life-limiting illness. This session will focus on ethical communication considerations for professionals providing hospice and palliative care to patients and their families. Considerations will be described, examples provided, and recommended strategies discussed. After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:

    • Recall at least three ethical communication considerations 
    • Describe how each consideration has the power to support or harm 
    • Explain the role ethical communication plays in building relationships with patients and families 
    • Discuss potential strategies for employing ethical communication
