Death Communication: The Forgotten Skill

March 2, 2021

Eventually we face the reality that there is absolutely nothing optional about coping with death. EMS providers will never overcome being uncomfortable with the death notification skill as long as we ignore the need for it. Alexandra Jabr, EMT-P, is the creator of Emergency Resilience, LLC and the course “Death Communication for First Responders: How to Deliver Unfortunate News.” In this month's first podcast she speaks with host Mike McCabe about this neglected portion of our training and its impacts. Don't miss the associated print article, “Death Communication—What We've Failed to Teach.”
