Whenua ki te whenua – an advance care planning guide for whānau

The Health Quality and Safety Commission is proud to launch this guide, which was co-designed with a Māori advisory group and  is a resource for all Aotearoa New Zealand.

It is a document designed to help New Zealanders think and talk through their advance care plans. It encourages people to look at what is important to people, their values and beliefs and consider practical decisions should they become unwell or unable to speak for themselves.  It also provides resources and examples of others people’s approaches to advance care planning.

For more information on the creation process of Whenua ki te whenua, please visit the corresponding news item.
