LIVE WEBINAR SERIES:
THE POWER OF OUR WORDS: CULTIVATING WORD CHOICE IN PATIENT-CENTERED CARE

Palliative Social Work Consultant
Anne Kelemen, LICSW, APHSW-C
Vice Chair, SWHPN

Palliative Care Section
MedStar Washington Hospital Center
Purpose: The goal of the webinar is to bring attention and intention to word choice in palliative care--to consider both conscious and unconscious biases and highlight unintended consequences of written and spoken words.
- Review common language used in healthcare settings to raise consciousness about the influence of word choice on patients, families, and outcomes
- Reflect on words and phrases commonly used in palliative and hospice practice, in daily communication, and in documentation that have unintended consequences
- Challenge silence and accommodation as responses to well-intended yet unhelpful communication, suggesting alternative phrasing and interventions to enhance word choice
