ACP is a series of discussion to plan for your future health and personal care. ACP discussion allows you to share with your loved ones how you wish to be cared for during a medical crisis if you are unable to think or make healthcare decisions for yourself.
1. Think about it
2. Discuss with your loved ones
3. Document your healthcare preferences
4. Review your healthcare preferences
ACP is for everyone, regardless of age and health condition.
ACP is offered as a complimentary service to all JurongHealth Campus patients and their next-of-kin. Communication is crucial to achieving intended ACP objectives. Hence, our ACP facilitators are trained and well-equipped with effective communication skills necessary to facilitate your ACP discussions. Should there be any issues that require further clarification, our facilitators will also be able to provide or direct you to the relevant information.
As part of the ethical principles governing ACP, we ensure strict confidentiality on all ACP discussions and the identities of persons who participate in ACP. Our team also makes it a point to avoid stereotyping and imposing their values upon the persons served.
