Advance Care Planning Overview

Having an Advance Care Plan for health care is important. Like all planning it involves thinking ahead. Advance care planning involves thinking about what you would do if you became so ill that you could no longer communicate with your loved ones or health care providers. You may be in good health right now, or you may have a chronic or serious health issue. But all of us need to think about what we would want if we were suddenly injured or suffered a tragic illness and were unable to hear or speak with others. WHO would talk with the doctor and nurses to make decisions for you? WHAT would they decide?
