Project Description

UCLA Health and Coalition for Compassionate Care of California

The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) is partnering with the UCLA Health System to develop and test an innovative comprehensive advance care planning model that routinely receives patient preferences through a standardized process that ensures that these preferences are recorded and that they can be retrieved and honored at critical times. This collaborative brings together two of California’s leading organizations to co-create a program that addresses the complex advance care planning needs of seriously ill patients receiving care within an academic health system. The ultimate goal is to create an advance care planning program that can be replicated in other health care systems in the state and across the country.
