Navigating difficult conversations

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Breaking bad news and navigating difficult conversations is challenging and a frequent occurrence in surgical oncology practice. Cancer communication recommendations are guided by ethical principles, legal precedence, and emerging evidence regarding patient preference and efficacy of communication tools. Evidence continues to mount supporting a patient-centered communication approach and a model of shared decision making. Likewise, physician training in effective patient-centered cancer communication continues to evolve.
