Dr. Billie, this was an excellent topic, and much needed in nursing! I work as an oncology nurse and difficult conversations never get any easier. Your program offers very useful information that my team can use immediately. I plan on sharing your program with all of my coworkers. Thank you again!

As a former hospice nurse, this is something that spoke to me. Having a guide for these discussions is an excellent idea to help with these difficult conversations
