What is Advance Care Planning?
Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a voluntary process of discussion on future care preferences between an individual, his or her family and healthcare providers.
Message From TTSH ACP Clinical Leads
Advance Care Planning is a process that enables a person to make plans about their future healthcare. It prepares a person for a time when they can no longer speak for themselves. Advance care planning puts the patient in the forefront – enabling the patient’s wishes to be known and subsequently followed. The conversations during Advance Care Planning also empowers family members to be better prepared and supported to care for their loved ones in times of health crises. We hope to enable and empower the communities we care for to Live Well and Leave Well with advance care planning as they journey down the River of Life.
Dr Adeline Lam & Dr Eunice Chua, ACP Clinical Leads
