The Seattle-based nonprofit, Vital Talk, specializes in building communication skills for healthcare professionals. With the COVID outbreak, it recognized a vast new sector of work. “We’re facing conversations that we never expected — or wanted — to have,” the group announced as it made available a guide that covers topics such as triaging, counseling, grieving and much more.
This resource is available in English and 21 additional languages. In it you’ll find what Vital Talk calls “practical advice on how to talk about some difficult topics related to COVID-19” that it’s built on two decades of communication research and teaching, plus consultation with clinicians in the grip of Seattle’s struggle with COVID.
