Goals of care discussion

The learner will engage a health care proxy (Daughter) in a goals of care discussion regarding their parent who is in critical condition. This will take place within view of a patient in critical condition in an Emergency Department resuscitation bay or critical care bed. The patient themselves will be otherwise static in respiratory failure, frail and listless, with BiPAP in place and a monitor demonstrating poor vital signs. This dynamic interaction will occur with the HCP who will transition in affect from a high anxiety, fear response to a comforted tone of acceptance and understanding if the learner is able to effectively engage in a goals of care dialogue and make a recommendation.
