Advance Care Planning is an important process. It involves talking with friends and loved ones about your future health care wishes, documenting what you may or may not want and it can include appointing a substitute decision maker. It enables you to take control of your future health care and treatment if you are not able to communicate your wishes.

In the sections below we provide you with more detailed information about advance care planning as a process, and how you can complete your own Advance Care Plan. If you have any queries or need further information, refer to the Links, Documents and Resources page or your local Advance Care Planning service, or email us at: rpcoffice@austin.org.au
