Advance Care Planning

Life’s better with a plan

Who do you want to make medical decisions for you if you were not able to make them yourself?

Would they know what you want?

In the future, there may come a time when you are so unwell that you cannot tell your family or healthcare team what you might want or not want with your medical treatment.

By thinking about this when you are well, even though it might be hard, you can help those who will make those decisions for you. This ensures your wishes are known.

This whole process of thinking and communicating your wishes is called Advance Care Planning (ACP). You can write your wishes in a document. This is called an Advance Care Directive. You can also appoint someone to speak for you, if you are too sick to speak for yourself. This person is called your Medical Treatment Decision Maker.
