The Voices of Duke Health podcast project, led by Anton Zuiker and Jonathan Bae, MD, has released its first four episodes, including an interview with Yousuf Zafar, MD, associate professor of medicine (Medical Oncology), public policy and population health, on hard conversations with patients and their loved ones.
In "The Hardest Conversations," Voices of Duke Health talks to the medical students who started the Duke Navigators Program to better learn how to talk with patients about end-of-life care decisions.
"Don't underestimate the therapeutic value of listening," said Dr. Zafar, who serves as a mentor to the Duke Navigators Program.
This week's episode, "The Rollercoaster," is a conversation with Beatriz Blanco Morris, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics, and her son, Will Morris, who talk about the ups and downs of losing a family member—and how colleagues at Duke stepped in to help them through the tough times.
Voices of Duke Health is a pilot innovation project that invites Duke Health providers, staff, students, trainees, patients, and visitors to have one-on-one conversations about what is meaningful in your lives, work, and relationships. Add your voice.
