#GOCCNJ is pleased to announce the launch of Your CarePlan™ with Penn Medicine Princeton Health. Your CarePlan is GOCCNJ's proprietary video guided #POLST completion tool that can be used in long-term care facilities, hospitals, or private practices. Your CarePlan can help healthcare providers deliver goal concordant care to patients, may reduce hospital readmissions, increase referrals and earlier access to palliative/hospice care, and reduce the burdens of serious illness on patients and their caregivers.

David LaMotte has retired as a #GOCCNJ board member after serving from the early years of the organization until June 2021. He devoted himself to improving end-of-life care for individual families through hospice, at the community level through his service at Penn Medicine Princeton Health, and systemically with #GOCCNJ. As a teacher and a caregiver, the common thread in his work is a belief in the power of listening. 

To honor his outstanding support of patients in NJ with serious illness, we created the 𝐃𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐝 𝐋𝐚𝐌𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐞 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐄𝐱𝐜𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐏𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭. While David is the inaugural recipient, this award will be given annually to a member of our coalition whose support for patients and families reflects the belief that listening is a learned skill essential to patient-centered care and the work of healing.
