Adapting the Serious Illness Conversation Guide for Patients from Diverse Communities

Event Details

The Serious Illness Conversation Guide (SICG) is used as a primary clinical tool to enhance the quality of advance care planning (ACP) for patients with serious illness using open-ended questions and language to learn patients’ goals, values, and priorities.  The guide was developed in a population of predominantly white, well-educated, urban patients in the Northeastern U.S. This presentation will reflect on the cultural safety and linguistic acceptability of the SICG for all English speaking British Columbians irrespective of ethnicity and socioeconomic status.
