Advance care planning (ACP) is for everyone, regardless of age or state of health. It is a series of voluntary discussions that help you better understand your state of health. Your preferences will be recorded and used to guide the healthcare team and your loved ones to make healthcare decisions on your behalf, in your best interests, if you are unable to do so yourself.
The participants in ACP discussions are a trained ACP facilitator, your loved ones, your healthcare providers and you. These discussions will be guided by your values and beliefs.
