Palliative Care and Geriatric Med_WEB LOGO_216x94.jpg

 

The Serious Illness Care Program is a systems-based approach to advance care planning. The goal of the program is to facilitate conversations with patients and families about their values, goals, and preferences regarding future medical care to help ensure that people receive medical care consistent with their wishes. Clinician participation in the Serious Illness Care Program can enhance patients' understanding of their illness and prognosis, allow patients control over their decisions, relieve burdens of decision making on family members, and help patients achieve a sense of peace as they live with serious illness. 

 

Target Audience

This activity is intended for MGH clinicians (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, nurses and others affiliated with MGH).

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

1. Identify their role in a system-based approach to improving care for patients with serious illness.
2. Practice using the Partners Serious Illness Conversation Guide.
3. Differentiate between conversations about goals of care and goals and values.
