Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship: The Elephant in the Room: Tackling Tough Topics With Your Patients

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you often find yourself reluctant to ask a patient a question because you are afraid to offend them or don't know the right words to use? What are the elephants in the room for you as a professional? Do you hesitate before raising the topic of sexuality, end-of-life issues, obesity, or treatment-related infertility? Do you ever wish you had a toolkit that could help you deal with sensitive issues? Get encouraged and inspired to face sensitive topics head on. Using clinical examples, you’ll see how you can confront the elephant in the room and emerge stronger and bolder.

The Mara Mogensen Flaherty Lecture is generously supported by the ONS Foundation.

Please note: Due to a scheduling change, Anne Katz will be presenting the Mara Mogensen Flaherty Memorial Lectureship in place of Theresa Brown.
