Setting a New Standard of Care for People with Serious Illness

As a healthcare professional committed to providing the best and most appropriate care for patients with serious illness, you are guiding your patients through one of the most important stages of their lives.

This can obviously be a challenging time for patients and families, as they confront the need to make difficult medical decisions, and for healthcare providers, too, as this conversation can be uncomfortable. At the Goals of Care Coalition of NJ, our mission is to help alleviate some of this burden by providing resources to encourage open and direct communication between you and your patients.
