Advanced Care Planning (ACP) - Helping your patients plan ahead


​Your patients can benefit from planning their healthcare preferences early.

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a series of voluntary discussions that help your patient better understand his state of health.  He can also share his values, medical care goals and preferences about healthcare options with his loved ones and healthcare providers.

By making his preferences known early, it helps to guide the healthcare team and his loved ones in making healthcare decisions on the patient’s behalf, in his best interests, should he lose the mental capacity to do so. His loved ones can be assured and have a peace of mind that they are fulfilling his wishes too. 

ACP conversations may be done independently by your patient in 4 simple steps using the DIY My Care Wishes Workbook, its online version on the ACP website, or with an ACP facilitator* at a public hospital.

  *If your patient is on follow-up at a public hospital, he may approach his physician-in-charge for a referral to an ACP facilitator. ACP Facilitators are located at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, National University Hospital, Jurong Health (Alexandra Hospital), Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, National Heart Centre Singapore and Changi General Hospital.
