Healthcare providers are increasingly recognizing that communication about goals of care is one of the most important elements in achieving clinical excellence, and that training clinicians in communication skills is a powerful tool in achieving desired outcomes. Advance care planning is a tool that allows you to communicate with your patients about what matters most, and have values-based conversations with every person you serve.
Five Wishes offers several training solutions to help providers develop and enhance advance care planning conversation skills.
