Advance Care Planning Week

National Advance Care Planning Week Australia logo

The time is now to talk about what matters most to you.

National Advance Care Planning WeekTM encourages you, regardless of your age or health status, to make your future health care preferences known.

Our campaign challenges everyone to discuss what living well means to you and to consider who you would want to speak for you, if you could no longer communicate or make your own health care decisions. It's been successful in starting tough but important conversations across the country.

We hope you will be able to help us build awareness during National Advance Care Planning Week, which will run between 20 - 26 March.
