Advance care planning is part of life planning. Who would speak for you if you could not speak for yourself?

Visit the BC Centre for Palliative Care’s campaign page for Advanced Care Planning information in English, Punjabi, and Chinese (simplified and traditional), in video format, as well as social media campaign content to start your own campaign! Not interested in doing that? Then, start the conversation on your own advanced care plan now!

Be sure to also check out BC CRN’s resources on advanced care planning here, which include workbooks that guide you through the process.
