Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning Process

Advance care planning is a simple process that you can start today. It involves thinking about your values, beliefs and preferences for your future health and care while you are still able to make decisions and communicate your preferences and acceptable outcomes. It also involves discussing them with your loved ones and doctors, and documenting them.

Starting the Conversation

Starting the conversation about advance care planning is an important first step in ensuring a person's preferences for future care are known and respected. If a person's preferences are not known, doctors may use aggressive treatments that the person might not have wanted - and families may feel burdened by the worry that they will make a wrong choice.
