Advanced Care Planning

Advanced Care Planning (ACP) is an ongoing discussion with your loved ones on your preferred healthcare treatments. We facilitate discussions with patients to explore on the following issues:

  • Your understanding of your medical condition and its potential complications
  • Your concept of living well
  • Your experiences in living well
  • Your values and goals in life
  • Your goals in medical treatments
  • Identify a nominated healthcare spokesperson healthcare proxy who will help make decisions on your behalf when you are not able to speak for yourself
  • During the discussion, it is encouraged to have your nominated healthcare spokesperson present so that he/she is aware of your treatment preferences
  • Communicate your preferences to your loved ones so that they can honor your wishes
