Podcast: recognising dying patients and having difficult conversations

Podcast logo

This month we’ve been putting end of life care firmly on the radar here at EEAST, talking about why a ‘good death’ matters and the role we play in it as an ambulance service.

So we’ve developed two handy podcasts for you that talk about recognising a dying patient, and how to have those difficult conversations.

How do we compassionately, kindly and supportively tell a patient and their family that we think they’ve come to the end of their life? And what can we do to make that situation easier for them?

You can listen now on Need to Know (or email the communications team to have a copy sent to you that you can store and listen to at a later date):

We’re looking to produce more clinical podcasts in the near future – if there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, please leave a comment below!
