The “What Matters to Me” Workbook was jointly created by Ariadne Labs and The Conversation Project to help people with a serious illness think through and talk about what matters most to them – to make sure they get the care they want.
After completing the Workbook and talking it over with someone close to you, the next step is to talk with your health care team (doctor, nurse, social worker, etc.) so they understand what’s most important to you. See our How To Talk To Your Doctor guide for useful advice.
“The Conversation Project emphasizes having a conversation on values — what matters to you, not what‘s the matter with you.”
– Ellen Goodman, Co-Founder & Director
