Your role in the Advance Life Care process is crucial. You can provide your patients with the medical information they require to make good decisions, assist them to talk about their preferences with their family, and ensure they update their Advance Life Care directive after any major life change. This will further validate their directive and choices. You can also help by ensuring they upload a PDF version of their Advance Life Care directive to a government website or e-Health Record if appropriate, and re-upload when they update. Modelling good Advance Care Planning is crucial so health professionals should make sure their own Advance Life Care is up to date. It’s peace of mind, and the best insurance for you and your family.
