Description

This session will describe the use of the Serious Illness Communication Guide - a structured tool to facilitate efficient and effective advance care planning (ACP) for patients with serious or life-limiting illness.

Participants will then be given the opportunity to conduct role play ACP discussions that are observed and mentored by faculty experienced in the use of this tool.

Learning Objectives:

  • Establish an effective environment for shared-decision making regarding ACP.
