Help start the conversation about palliative care

by Medical Staff Office on January 28, 2014

Too often, family members are left to make difficult decisions about care for a loved one who is at the end of his or her life. Emotions are running high and, without clear instructions from the patient, the family may make decisions about their care that goes against the patient’s wishes. It can be difficult to think about, but making decisions about care at the end of life before someone is seriously ill or incapacitated is important. The Conversation Project helps patients, families and healthcare providers discuss end-of-life care. The project provides a toolkit to help start these conversations and consolidate the patient’s wishes in one central location. It lays out medical terminology in easy-to-understand language and answers frequently asked questions about what end-of-life care options may be available. Click here to download the toolkit and share with patients.
