Applications for the National Advance Care Planning Prevalence Study open to general practices nationally

Grandfather and grandson discussing advance care planning.

Advance Care Planning Australia in partnership with Monash University is conducting a National Advance Care Planning Prevalence Study.

The National Advance Care Planning Prevalence Study will help determine the prevalence of advance care planning documentation for people aged over 65 in hospitals, general practice and aged care homes. This is a Decision Assist initiative and supported by funding from the Commonwealth.

The National Advance Care Planning Prevalence Study is underway, but applications from general practices may still be considered. If you would like to apply, please call us on (03) 9496 5660 or e-mail acpdecisionassist@austin.org.au to discuss.
