R.E.D.E. to Communicate®: Advance Care Planning (eLearning)

Advance Care Planning (ACP) conversations can be some of the most rewarding conversations in healthcare. And yet, many providers haven’t been taught the most effective ways to talk to patients about their values and wishes.

In this course, you will learn the definitions that often accompany these conversations, how to start the conversation as well as how the communication skills taught in R.E.D.E. apply in ACP. More specifically, we will review talking to a patient about prognosis, about their values and wishes and about code status. Throughout the course, you will hear from patients who have lived through the experience of a family member with a serious illness.
