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.  The website offers a range of free resources including conversation startersfree email info pack and thought-provoking video.
