    ADA is interested to know if forum members are interested in a webcast focused on having difficult conversations, and discussing end of life with patients and their families.

    A resource I am aware of on this topic that may be helpful is The Conversation Project: https://theconversationproject.org/. The objective of this project is to provide resources to individuals to have end-of-life conversations with their loved ones prior to the need for these decisions to be acted upon. This is a Boston-based initiative that is housed under the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. It was started by the journalist Ellen Goodman (Boston Globe).
