Advanced Care Planning and Statement of Choices
Advanced care planning is a routine part of a person’s health care and particularly so now with the COVID-19 pandemic. Should you become infected, knowing your preferences for future medical treatment will be an important element of your health care.
Your values and decisions about your health care should be discussed openly and documented so that your health care preferences can be respected at a time when you cannot voice your decisions.
Advanced Care Planning Australia provides information and resources that will assist you. https://www.advancecareplanning.org.au The website offers a range of free resources including conversation starters, free email info pack and thought-provoking video.
