Helping break unwelcome news COVID-19 outbreak
Health Education England has published a set of materials and films which aim to support staff through difficult conversations arising from the COVID-19 outbreak.
The AHSN Network was part of a small group of people that helped pull this resource together in less than two weeks.
The framework includes posters and films based on the evidence base from Real Talk and then filmed with willing volunteers.
