Tough Talk: A Toolbox for Medical Educators

Having conversations with patients can be a difficult task, and it can be particularly difficult for new medical students. Fortunately, there is the "Tough Talk" website, which was created by a team of researchers at the University of Washington's Medical School. Here visitors will find information about teaching medicine and how to make neophyte medical students more comfortable around patients. Visitors will note that there is a section on "Core Teaching Skills" which contains narrative-based passages on "goal setting", "addressing emotion", and "common teaching challenges". Each section contains materials designed for the classroom, including role-playing activities. Additionally, visitors can also take advantage of the annotated bibliography and download a PDF which contains all of the materials on the site.
