Advanced Care Planning

Advance Care Planning (ACP) enables a person to discuss and document the extent of medical intervention they wish to receive when in critical care or if approaching the end of their life.

ACP should be part of routine practice and with the increasing impact of COVID-19 on services, it is critical for clinical staff to proactively engage in these discussions with all patients and families.

NSW Health Information is also available to help people understand the importance of planning ahead and of documenting their preferences for care and treatment.
