Having great communication skills makes a difference—your patients will understand their medical situation better, build trust with you faster, and you will be able to guide them to medical decisions that match their values.

This app helps improve your communication skills with patients experiencing serious illness and their family members. Each tip can be utilized for your specific discipline and subspecialty. For clinicians in hospital medicine, oncology, cardiology, social work, nephrology, hepatology, chaplains, neurology, trauma, emergency medicine, primary care, pediatrics, palliative care and more. This app is made for you!

We've complied the research and curated a special set of communication skill tips, focused on the moments where clinicians most often get stuck. Flip through the tips by topic (serious news, prognosis, family conferences, goals of care, and more), or just get a daily tip as a notification. Read the tip (it'll take less than 10 seconds), try it out, and over time, your practice will improve.

Must-have for med students and more

This app has made me feel more confident when talking to patients and especially when responding to emotion. It’s so well done and nicely organized. Every healthcare professional should have this resource on their phone— right next to Epocrates and MDCalc.
