How to Facilitate Goal Concordant Care

When it comes to  care of the seriously ill, one conversation can make all the difference. That’s why Thoughtful Life Conversations (TLC) trains professionals in healthcare settings to have quality conversations with their patients about advance care planning, and to truly understand palliative and end-of-life care for people of all ages.

Healthcare professionals —doctors, nurses, social workers, clergy, etc.—can learn how to foster Thoughtful Life Conversations with their patients at any point on the care continuum.

If having more, better and earlier conversations surrounding your seriously ill patients’ values and priorities are core to your work, you’ll want to take one of TLC’s highly interactive workshops, where participants have the opportunity to practice case study conversations.

Learn about Communication in Serious Illness workshops. Some workshops offer continuing education credits for professionals.
