What Is Advance Care Planning?

An ACP is simply a plan you make in advance, for your care at the end of your life.

Advance care planning gives you time to consider and reflect on the kind of health and medical care you would consent to, or refuse, in a crisis. The best time to make an ACP is when you are younger and your health is still good.

For more resources on advance care planning (posters, videos, workbook etc)  please visit the Speak Up! Advance Care Planning Campaign website.

For additional advance care planning resources developed by residents please visit the Section of Residents web page.
