Brave New Normal

Keeping Conversations Vital in Healthcare

Val Walker

Brave New Normal is a series of interviews with professionals devoted to preserving the role of conversation in healthcare.

Dialogue, building camaraderie and trust between patients, caregivers and providers is not only vital to better communication, but allows for care planning that reflects the patient's wishes and concerns.

I'm excited to interview innovative and outspoken experts who can weigh in on how to have effective conversations in the hurried new normal of our digital age. I'll be profiling authors, researchers, clinicians, and educators to inspire our confidence as communicators—person-to-person.
