McKnight’s: There are few things I loathe more in the world than ice-breaking, “getting-to-know-you games” — except maybe when those games are played at a baby or wedding shower. And I know that I’m far from alone. The problem is, though, I’m exactly the kind of person who often needs an icebreaker to get a conversation started, especially for conversations that are difficult to have.

It’s a good thing, then, that a group of knowledgeable professionals put together a campaign called The Conversation Project, which seeks to help families and caregivers confront, arguably, the most important conversation of all — how best to honor an individual’s end-of-life wishes.
