ACT Advance Care Planning Program
ACT Government, Canberra Health Services
Advance care planning (ACP) is a series of steps you can take to help you plan for your future health care. ACP is based on the principles of autonomy and dignity. You have the right to make decisions about your health care, now and for the future.
Medical treatment should only be given with your fully informed consent and you have the right to refuse treatment.
If, in the future, you become unable to express your choices for treatment, your doctors and family/friends may not know what you would want. ACP gives you the opportunity to think about, discuss and record, ahead of time, your choices.
Advance care planning is ONLY used if/ when you lose legal capacity to make decisions and express your wishes and choices about your medical treatment.
