Advance Care Planning Day, 5 April 2018

21 Mar 2018 | ACP information for clinicians

Advance Care Planning Day is an opportunity for each region to connect with their communities to enhance the profile and knowledge of advance care planning. Advance Care Planning Day was previously known as Conversations that Count Day.

The Health Quality & Safety Commission is overseeing the national advance care planning programme, with funding from district health boards (DHBs).

Advisory and steering groups have been established to support and guide the programme.

About two weeks before Advance Care Planning Day, key messages and tweets will be sent to DHB communication managers and ACP contacts; and a national media release will be sent out on 4 April.

Over 60,000 resources have been dispatched to DHBs and others. A new resource entitled What matters most for your future care is available in hard copy, or can be downloaded from our website.

For further information please email Clare O’Leary.

We look forward to hearing more about your events across the regions.
