Description

Goals of care are what a patient wants to achieve during an episode of care, within the context of their clinical situation.

Goals may be clinical and personal and are determined in the context of a shared decision making process. Identifying goals of care helps to organise and prioritise care activities and contributes to improved satisfaction, quality-of-life and self-efficacy for patients.
