Advance Care Planning Australia (ACPA)

Advance Care Planning Australia (ACPA) has reported that it has received five times the number of calls it did the previous year.

It’s obvious that the promotion of advance care directives by agencies around Australia is working.

Funded by the Australian Government, ACPA has operated a free nationwide advisory service since July 2014. It supports individuals, families and healthcare professionals with specialised advance care planning information, research and advice.

ACPA’s advisory service can help people navigate the complexities of advance care planning, offering specialist advice including how to start the conversation, help with forms relevant to each state and territory, as well as documenting preferences in an advance care directive.
