Difficult Conversations

Covers of books in the Difficult Conversations series

NCPC’s Difficult Conversations series looks at a range of conditions, and aims to help anyone, paid or unpaid, caring for someone with those conditions to open up conversations about end of life wishes and preferences, in order to enhance quality of life. There are currently five titles in the series:

  • Difficult Conversations for COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder)
  • Difficult Conversations for Dementia
  • Difficult Conversations for MND (Motor Neurone Disease)
  • Difficult Conversations for Heart Failure*
  • Difficult Conversations for Young Adults*

The booklets are based on conversations with real people living with those conditions, as well as their carers and former carers. We hope their insights will inspire confidence to start and continue these important conversations.
