CAPC Communications Skills Pathfinder

Only 29% of physicians report having received any formal training in communication about goals of care. Nearly half report being unsure about what to say in these conversations. Yet high-quality communication is a major driver of high-quality care, particularly for patients with serious illness. It leads to improved quality of life, patient and family coping, enhanced goal-consistent care, and fewer hospitalizations. 

To address this issue CAPC, Ariadne Labs, and VitalTalk have launched the Communications Skills Pathfinder, an online portal to help frontline clinicians, trainers, and health systems navigate best practices and choose the training models that best suit their needs. The goal is for every clinician to have the highest quality communication with the seriously ill patients they serve.
