Goals of Care Coalition of NJ Centers of Excellence

Pursuing Excellence

The Goals of Care Coalition of NJ, is proud to partner with leading skilled nursing facilities to establish Centers of Excellence for end-of-life care. The goal of the Goals of Care Coalition of NJ Centers of Excellence program is to improve end-of-life care in skilled nursing facilities throughout the state. We provide resources, training, and tools to promote high-quality communication between patients, families, and health care providers on advance care planning and have created a certification protocol that recognizes the successful completion of this training.

The Goals of Care Coalition of NJ Centers of Excellence program uses a multidisciplinary approach to educate and empower health care teams, their patients, and the patients’ loved ones and strengthen their communication to eliminate burdensome care, improve quality of life, and ensure that treatment decisions focus on patients’ goals.

If you are interested in becoming a Center of Excellence or finding one in your area, contact the Goals of Care Coalition of NJ.
