Advance Care Planning (ACP) Day
Advance care planning (ACP) helps people prepare for the unexpected. Many of us will at some point in our lives be incapable of making health care, personal care, financial, or legal decisions. Being prepared allows your beliefs, values, and wishes to be represented and respected when you are incapable. Being prepared also reduces the stress on your family and friends who may be called on to make decisions on your behalf.
Advance Care Planning Day (ACP) is April 16, 2023. The BC Centre for Palliative Care encourages everyone to create ACP awareness in their communities by:
- Harnessing the power of social media
- Engaging local media
- Sharing personal stories
- Hosting public sessions/events
- Promoting ACP online
- Starting your own advance care planning
