Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is making decisions about the healthcare you do or do not want at the end of your life. This involves talking to your family, friends, and health or social care professionals you see regularly, for example, your doctor or nurse.

You may wish to discuss the following with your healthcare professional and your loved ones:

  • your concerns
  • your personal values / your personal goals
  • your understanding of your illness and the expectations you have for how it might progress over time
  • any preferences you have for the type of care or treatment that might be beneficial in the future, and whether these preferences are likely to be available
