    Physicians are often reluctant to discuss dying and end-of-life care with their patients because it stirs up strong emotions for the patients, their family, and the physicians themselves. However, such conversations are essential in providing the best care for terminally ill patients. This course will help physicians open a dialogue to determine a patient’s wishes regarding his or her end-of-life care.
