Advance care planning June 2015 Update

The Victorian government believes that all Victorians are entitled to quality end of life care which relieves pain and suffering and provides empowerment to patients and their family, friends and carers. People using our health services should be supported to have informed discussions about their future preferences – including end of life care - with their health professionals, substitute decision maker, families and carers. Advance care planning is a central part of ensuring Victorian’s have opportunities to have a greater say in their future health and personal care so that their values, beliefs and preferences are made known and can guide future decision making.
