Advance Care Planning (ACP)

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a voluntary process of discussion between you and your care providers (e.g. doctor, district nurse, social worker, specialist nurse) and planning ahead in anticipation of some deterioration in your condition. If you wish, your family and friends may be included.

An ACP discussion might include:

  • Your concerns
  • your important values or personal goals for care
  • your understanding about your illness and prognosis
  • your preferences for types of care or treatment that may be beneficial in the future and the availability of these
Discussions should be documented, regularly reviewed and communicated to key people involved in your care.
