Just Talk About It Videos and Toolkit

Research shows that when hard decisions need to be made, patients and their loved ones have an easier time if they have discussed their wishes and values ahead of time.

Funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging and produced by the Take Charge Partnership, these one-minute videos are based on recommendations from across Pennsylvania by members of the Task Force for Quality at the End of Life.

Our toolkit provides discussion guides with research background and a new PowerPoint presentation for speakers, ALL for FREE.

View or download the one-minute videos.
