Communication Workshop: Engaging in Goals of Patient Care Conversations

This half-day workshop provides opportunity to develop effective skills in patient-centred communication. Goals of care discussions allow patient values to be at the forefront of care planning with the understanding and practical application of an evidence-based framework. Goals of care conversations and planning evolve over time from admission to discharge or death, not in isolation, and require all health professionals to communicate patient values effectively, within and between any health care team. This workshop uses experiential scenarios that provide participants with an opportunity to practice simulated patient care conversations and receive real-time feedback.
