Learning from their stories

These advance care planning case studies can help to promote discussions about advance care planning with individuals, family members and carers. They can also be used in advance care planning education and training settings for health and care workers.

By sharing your story too, you can help other Australians learn more about advance care planning and how they can plan for your future health care. Contact us to share your experience.

"We choose our words and guide the discussion carefully. But we want people to understand that there is a choice. And at the end-of-life you can exercise that choice."
