Advance Care Planning
Five Steps to Advance Care Planning
Doing advance care planning “gives you a say, to the end of your day” and is something everyone should do to take control of their life, their future life, and their end of life.
Advance care planning is not unique to America; it is something that is important for any adult no matter where in the world you may live.
Canada’s Speak Up Campaign provides an excellent framework for anyone to use.
Five Steps to Advance Care Planning:
1. Think about what is important to you
2. Learn about different medical procedures and what they can and can’t do for you
3. Choose or decide on your substitute decision maker
4. Talk about your wishes
5. Record your wishes formally with an advance directive
