Advance Care Planning

Advance care planning

Advance care planning
The process of advance care planning helps you to plan your medical care in advance, should you become too unwell to make decisions for yourself. The process varies from state to state, so PCWA explains how it works in WA.

Dying to Talk Discussion Starter
You never know what the future holds. It is never too early to plan ahead. Talking now can help your family and friends in the future, and can make sure you get the kind of care that you want. The online Dying to Talk Discussion Starter will guide you through that discussion. It will help you prepare, so that you know what you want to say and it will provide you with tips about how to start talking. An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Discussion Starter is available online too.

ELDAC (End of Life Directions for Aged Care)
The ELDAC project aims to improve the care of older Australians. Health professionals and aged care workers can access information, guidance, and resources to support palliative care and advance care planning for older people and their families.

The My Values website helps you to identify, consider and communicate your wishes about the medical treatment you would want in the later stages of life.
