I have advanced training in communication skills, especially those at the end of life. This expertise is due, in part, to a five day communications skills workshop sponsored by "VitalTalk."
I have also received "train the trainer" education based on an evidence based collaboration between "VitalTalk" and the VA Healthcare System as the VA launched its Life Sustaining Treatment Decisions Initiative.
