Rainbow's Director of Community and Engagement and Care Partner Relations, Mike Bernhagen, recently gave a presentation on his Consider the Conversation film series to a group of parish nurses at the Fort Atkinson Hospital Auditorium on Monday, September 25.


The film series, comprised of two installments - Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject and Consider the Conversation 2: Stories about Cure, Relief, and Comfort - intimately explores the American struggle with communication and preparation for end-of-life and seeks to inspire dialogue between patient and doctor, husband and wife, parent and child, minister and parishioner on end-of-life wishes. Co-produced with Terry Kaldhusdal, Wisconsin’s 2007 Teacher of the Year, Consider the Conversation aired 2,199 times on PBS stations around the country from 2011 to 2016 and garnered 22 awards, including an Emmy nomination.
