Grampians Region Palliative Care Consortium is committed to raising awareness of and promoting advance care planning in the community – before needing to be in hospital.
Remember an advance care plan is only used if you are unable to make and communicate your own decisions about the treatment you want or not want; so, it needs to be thought about and put in place ahead of when it may be needed.
Thinking and talking about the process of advance care planning and putting in place a written record (an advance care plan or directive) is important for everyone, whether you are:
- Younger and well, but concerned about the health of older or unwell family or friends, or
- Older and want to lessen the burden on family or friends.
