Premiered on Wisconsin Public Television on 5/27/14, nominated for a Regional Emmy® on 9/23/14, and released to public television stations nationwide on 9/26/14, Consider the Conversation 2: Stories about Cure, Relief, and Comfort highlights the value of palliative care and shows viewers what end-of-life conversations with medical professionals look like, sound like, and feel like. It features the perspectives of seriously ill patients from a variety of backgrounds as well as the doctors who care for them. The primary goal of this film is to demonstrate that communication is a skill on par with the clinical skills of diagnosis, treatment and prognostication - something medical professionals can teach, learn, and use for therapeutic benefit.
