Advance Care Planning is the process of planning for a person's future health and personal care.

Advance care planning helps ensure that an individual's preferences for future medical treatment are respected.

Beliefs, values and preferences are made known, in order to guide future care in the event that the person is unable to make decisions or communicate.

The Advance Care Planning Special Interest Group (ACP SIG) is committed to achieving and promoting the professional, educational and economic interest of nurses and other relevant health workers engaged in the field of advance care planning.
