Description & Session Objectives

Advance care planning in real life: Advancing our understanding and comfort

Dr. Leah Steinberg, Palliative Care Consult Team, Mount Sinai Hospital

Dr. Jeff Myers, Site Lead, Bridgepoint Palliative Care Unit, Sinai Health System

Date:              October 3, 2019

Time:             12 – 1 p.m.

Location:       14th Floor Classroom

We know patients wish to talk about their future. We know decision-makers experience less distress when conversations have happened. And we know that health care providers experience many barriers to having these conversations. The challenges are internal (our fears of causing harm, removing hope) and external (how do I have time, where do I chart this?).  In this session, learn how a person-centred framework and focus can make these conversations easier and rewarding.

Objectives:

  1. Be introduced to a new framework that provides direction and guidance around person-centred conversations.
  2. Gain knowledge of the meaning of advance care planning, goals of care conversations and consent and how these interrelate.
  3. Learn about new on-line resources to increase your knowledge and skill in this area
