Advanced Care Planning

What is Advance Care Planning (ACP)?

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.

4 Simple Steps to ACP
  1. Think about it
    • Understand your personal health conditions
    • Consider what you need to live meaningfully
    • Reflect on past healthcare experiences, fears and concerns
  2. Discuss with your loved ones
    • Share your personal values, goals of care and treatment preferences with your loved ones
    • Choose one or two trusted loved ones to be your Nominated Healthcare Spokespersons (NHS). Your NHS will make healthcare decisions on your behalf and in your best interest in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself.
  3. Document your healthcare preferences
    • Record your healthcare preferences in your Advance Care Plan with the help of our trained ACP Facilitators
    • Your Advance Care Plan will be accessible in all restructured hospitals in Singapore
  4. Review your healthcare preferences
    • Update your Advance Care Plan if your healthcare preferences change
Who is ACP for?

ACP is for everyone, regardless of age and health condition.

Why is ACP important?
  • ACP can save your loved ones from having to make guesses about the type of care you might or might not want in times of an unexpected medical emergency. You can ease their concerns by voicing your healthcare preferences now.
  • ACP allows you to receive care and treatment that are aligned to your personal values and goals of care
