Complex Care Conversations - Creating a Climate for Healing is an interactive curriculum designed for small groups to increase clinician ease and effectiveness in approaching goals of care conversations with patients dealing with serious, progressive illnesses. Many sessions still available – choose the date that works best for you. This program offers guidance in how to approach this sometimes awkward subject so that important discussions are not delayed or postponed. The sessions offer a framework for navigating these conversations that elicit patient values and preferences in a way that is mutually transformative for clinicians and patients.
