Australia’s population is ageing. Well-coordinated and appropriate health care is a key priority. It’s becoming increasingly important for the health care sector to better understand advance care planning, which supports person-centred care, aligned with an individual’s values, goals and preferences.

Advance Care Planning Australia is partnering with recognised advance care planning leaders across Australia to deliver an advance care planning seminar in every state and territory in 2018-2020.

This first seminar is in Perth and presented by Advance Care Planning Australia, Palliative Care Network WA and Cancer Council Western Australia.

The topics covered include advance care planning across sectors, legal considerations and implementation. The event is recommended for professionals leading and implementing advance care planning in health services, residential aged care and primary care.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Karen Detering, Advance Care Planning Australia
  • Hon Roger Cook, WA Minister for Health
  • Sue Shilbury, Austin Health
  • Kim Greeve, Department of Health
