The Serious Illness Care (SIC) Program was created by a team of palliative care experts at Ariadne Labs to address the challenge of compassionate and clear conversations to ease confusion and fear when patients face serious, life-threatening illness. At the center of the program is the Serious Illness Conversation Guide, which offers clinicians language to ask patients about their goals, values, and wishes. The guide is one element of a multi-component program creating system-level support for clinicians to have these important conversations with their patients.
Training is offered to NEPHO’s Family and Internal Medicine providers, Cardiologists, Pulmonologists, Oncologists, Neurologists, Oncology Surgeons and their advanced practice providers, NP/PA’s
