Advance Care Directives & The Law


Webinar summary

17 October 2018

Although most people have clear preferences with regard to end-of-life care, there is a disconnect between these preferences and what happens in practice. Advance care directives (ACDs) are a way of allowing people to plan ahead for any future loss in decision-making capacity, by allowing a systematic approach to decision making that respects the person’s previously ex-pressed wishes.

This webinar review’s the role of ACDs and ACPs and identifies when an ACD’s apply, it provides support to assist you with initiating end of life discussions with patients and assisting them with preparing their ACDs.
