Leading a Family Meeting

  • 12/03/2014
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

The family goal-setting meeting is where decisions are made about medical interventions for seriously ill patients. These meetings require extraordinary communication skills to best help patients, families and health care providers navigate the strong emotions. The presentation will review a 10-step process for leading a goal-of-care discussion that maximizes the opportunity for emotional engagement and sharing of patient values. The presentation will review methods by which chaplains can use their skills to enhance patient family decision making and support other health care professionals.
