This post and the hashtag discussion at #EOLchat were inspired by
conversations generated in several Twitter chat communities (hat tip to
#hcsm, #hpm, & #bcsm) and by the incredible resource of the National Healthcare Decisions Day
(NHDD) initiative. These are communities that are dedicated to
increasing communication and education between health care providers,
and health care consumers.
One theme that I noticed is a sense that
there are certain conversations that feel very challenging.This
theme comes up a lot in therapy. Some of us aren't comfortable having
conversations where we reveal and explore our anger. Some of us avoid
talking about the things that make us feel helpless...more.
