Have your say: Goals of Care & Advance Care Planning in Cardiology

March 8, 2022

You are invited to participate in a research study entitled “Goals of Care and Advance Care Planning in Cardiology: The Canadian Experience.”

During a serious cardiac illness, physicians should evaluate goals of care, review pre-existing advance care planning, and discuss prognosis with the patient. Unfortunately, sometimes certain pathways of care are assumed instead of deliberately discussed. A better understanding of these processes will help define the issue and identify targets for systematic improvement initiatives.

Tell us what is important for goals of care and advance care planning discussions with your cardiology patients.
