Abstract

To educate the Obstetrics and Gynecology residents about how to conduct conversations about poor prognoses, a panel discussion was scheduled, with patient-educators teaching about their experiences receiving bad news. The resident physicians reported that this conference format was an effective method for teaching this content. The patient-educators appreciated assisting the physicians, were comfortable in the conference setting, and reported a willingness to return for conferences in the future.
