GeriPal - A Geriatrics and Palliative Care Podcast

Dec 29, 2022

From discussing “taking away the keys to the car” for a cognitively impaired older adult to decisions to limit life sustaining treatments at the end of life, conflict and disagreement permeate everything that we do in medicine.  How well though are we taught to handle conflict and disagreement?  I’d say not well as I don’t think I’ve ever received a formal talk on the issue.

On today’s podcast we take a deep dive into the topic of Negotiation and Dispute Resolution training with Lee Lindquist and Alaine Murawski.   We’ve had Lee on before to talk about her Plan your Lifespan project.  We invited her back along with Alaine to talk about their work around negotiation training, including their work on NegotiAge, an online, AI based training intervention designed to teach negotiation skills to caregivers.
