A Good Life: An end of life conversation worth havingDescription
For many doctors, talking to patients faced with an End of Life decision can be challenging. This module aims to change the medical approach to End of Life care through good communication, by fostering a cultural change that is focused on providing a patient with treatment options that considers their attitudes, values and goals.
‘Good Life’ communication is about understanding what is important and valued by the patient. Having an open conversation about End of Life care will ultimately lead to patient centred clinical decisions and the best outcome for the patient. These clinical decisions will offer support and comfort to patients and their families.
