Customising the Serious Illness Conversation Guide for Aotearoa New Zealand

The Aotearoa version of the Serious Illness Conversation Guide was adapted through a process of co-design. The Health Quality & Safety Commission worked with consumers, whānau and clinicians from across NZ to look at the language used in the American version of the guide and how we might adapt it to feel more comfortable for clinicians to use and for consumers to experience. 

Read our conference poster for details of the process followed, the themes that emerged and the changes that were made to the guide.
