Advanced Care Planning
Advance care planning is a process of understanding, reflecting on, and discussing future medical preferences with your loved ones and treatment team.

Advance care planning can help you:

  • Clarify your health care goals and values
  • Make choices about appointing someone who knows your medical care wishes and could speak for you if you could not speak for yourself
  • Communicate your wishes with your family, friends, clergy, and health care providers
  • Discuss what kind of medical care you want at end of life
  • Put your wishes in writing to guide medical decisions
