Advance Care Planning Week

A time to talk about what matters most.

National Advance Care Planning Week encourages all Australians, regardless of their age or health status, to make their future health care preferences known.

The initiative challenges people to discuss what living well means to them and to consider who they would want to speak for them, if they could no longer communicate or make their own decisions. The initiative has been successful in starting tough but important conversations across the country.

National Advance Care Planning Week has finished for 2022, but remember every week is a good week to start the conversation. Join us in early 2023 to prepare for the campaign in March, and find out more about advance care planning now.
