Advance Care Planning Australia
Be open, be ready, be heard. With Advance care planning, elders can now plan for their future. When they become seriously ill and unable to communicate their preferences or treatment decisions, their loved ones and health providers would know what matters most to them and respect their treatment preferences.
Advance Care Planning Australia is funded by the Australian Government and administered by Austin Health.
To learn more about the program and related activities, please visit Advance Care Planning Australia website.
