The aim of this course is to equip the user with a model of breaking bad news, to both patients and next of kin alike, and provide an opportunity to reflect on the challenges and key skills required in these difficult conversations. This is not meant to demonstrate best practice or represent a guideline, but to highlight real frontline experiences as general physicians, and continue the discussion around ‘talking about dying’, which was a publication released by the RCP Our Future Health team recently.
