National Advance Care Planning Week 2021

We all want to have a say in what happens in the last part of our lives. By making plans that cover our care, lifestyle, health and finances, we work out what we want, as well as making things easier on those around us. This process is called Advance Care Planning.

National Advance Care Planning Week, held this year on 22-26 March, plays an important role in raising the profile of advance care planning. It provides opportunity to start conversations, share information and help people to understand just how important it is.

Here are the events that Palliative Care WA is holding during National Advance Care Planning Week.
