Planning Ahead: Advance Care Planning

16 January 2020

Advance care planning (ACP) is a voluntary communication process between an individual, his or her loved ones, and care providers about his or her future care preferences. It guides the individual to reflect, share and document his or her care preferences based on personal values, beliefs and wishes. ACP is for everyone, regardless of age or health status. It is heralded as an essential component in promoting respect for patient self-determination, right-siting of treatment and care services and improving end of life care within the healthcare setting. As part of its vision to provide holistic patient care, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) implemented a hospital-wide ACP initiative in September 2013.

Through this lecture, participants will be introduced to:

  • The principles, framework and benefits of ACP
  • The implementation framework of ACP in SGH

At the end of the lecture, participants may choose to (1) complete their individual ACP, and/or (2) sign up to be trained an ACP advocate or facilitator.
