Caring End: Revitalizing clinical practice through end-of-life conversations

I created the Caring End CARES system to solve a problem I was having in my  family medicine practice: despite my good intentions, I was not helping my patients prepare the advanced care plans that they needed; and practice demands were diminishing the sense of mastery, satisfaction and ability to connect with my patients that were so important to me. 
With this book, you will be able to:
  • Describe the need for clinicians to initiate end-of-life conversations, and to discuss clinician and patient barriers to such conversations.
  • Describe your patient’s medical life journey as a road trip, defined by their stage of life and functional performance capacity, which helps you communicate prognosis.
  • Implement the CARES System to clarify patient values and preferences, frame prognosis, and set the stage for  effective collaboration on goals of treatment and care.
  • Implement the CARES System to leverage chronic disease action plans that empower patients in their advance care planning to become informed, proficient and proactive in their care decisions.
Caring End, the book, scheduled for publication in 2023, is available now for the prepublication price of $9.95. At publication, the price will be $24.95.
