This project was made possible in part through a grant from The Greenwall Foundation. The observations and experience with teaching comes most recently through our work with Oncotalk, a training program for Oncology Fellows funded by the National Cancer Institute.
I am indebted to the faculty of Oncotalk for teaching me the subtle, yet powerful skills that are necessary to teach well. These faculty, Bob Arnold, Tony Back, Walter Baile, and James Tulsky, have tremendous capacities as people as well as teachers, which makes them such a pleasure to work with. Their insights are infused throughout these teaching materials, but the limitations are my own.
I would also like to thank the other consultants, program managers, and research assistants that made this work possible, especially Frances Petracca, Rose Callahan, and Carla Calogero. Tom Gallagher, a Greenwall Faculty Scholar and clinician-teacher, graciously contributed the module on Error Disclosure. The manual and website designs are by UW Publication Services designers Karin Mellskog and Nigel Hensius.
