Communication Tools: Communication is the cornerstone that builds and reinforces the relationship between provider and patient. This is a skill set that requires development and practice to be successful. The VitalTalk curriculum offers evidence-based training that “makes communication skills for serious illnesses learnable” with a goal to “empower clinicians and institutions” to have better conversations leading to better care for their patients and families. 

The Hawaii VitalTalk Consortium is pleased to share two Hawaii-produced videos demonstrating communication tools that are included in the VitalTalk curriculum.
