Can We Talk

Talking About What Matters With the People Who Matter

Can We Talk? is NPAF’s education campaign to increase awareness of person-centered in communities. Through workshops, NPAF staff and volunteers are convening patients and caregivers, along with other health care stakeholders, to equip them with new skills and resources so they are better able to communicate with their doctors, health care team, families and friends about the things that matter such as their goals, fears, finances and other unmet needs.
