Goals of Care v1.0
The Goals of Care clinical document type is used to capture advance care information in alignment with Western Australia’s Goals of Patient Care Summary documents.
Goals of Care documents represent a sub-type of Advance Care Planning documents.
Goals of Care documents can include a statement related to a person’s care in the context of a serious illness, as agreed between him/her, his/her family, carers and healthcare team, i.e. high-quality discussions about what is important to them, promote good decision-making and patient-centred care. Goals of care cover many steps in healthcare decision-making, including decisions about specific treatments, the intensity of care and even planning for future care needs (advance care directive).
