  • ACP is a voluntary discussion to help patients understand their state of health and preferences
  • Participants
    • A trained ACP facilitator
    • The patient
    • Patient’s family members
    • Healthcare providers
  • The principle issue behind ACP is patient autonomy
  • ACP is not limited to end-of-life issues, but also extends to long-term care situations, e.g. NG placement
  • ACP can act as a guide for healthcare professionals and family if a patient becomes mentally incapacitated
  • The intended outcome of ACP is a statement of wishes, although the ACP outcome is not legally-binding
  • The ACP outcome may lead to legally-binding documents such as an AMD or an LPA
  • Individuals should be encouraged to involve family in the process so that their wishes may be understood
  • The patient can terminate an ACP discussion at any time
