Transforming how we care for seriously ill patients in Vermont.

Transforming Serious Illness Conversations

TalkVermont is a multi-component intervention to improve conversations between clinicians and seriously ill patients across the UVM Health Network. We use evidence-based methods, developed with national innovators, to train clinicians in state-of the art communication around serious illness and re-engineer the practice environment to support timely, effective communication.
