Abstract

There is an unmet need for early, high quality, and well-documented conversations about goals of care between patients with serious illnesses and their primary care providers. Colchester Family Medicine, as part of the University of Vermont Medical Group, is implementing a program to train its providers in structured goals of care conversations for patients with serious illnesses. However, there remains a need to prepare patients for these difficult conversations and provide appropriate resources. This project created a SmartPhrase to provide to patients, containing language and resources to help them prepare for serious illness conversations.
