Let’s Talk ‘Advance Care Planning’ (GCUH)
“It’s time to talk about Advance Care Planning on the Gold Coast. I have an advance care plan on My Health Record, it means my friends, family and doctors aren’t guessing about my care wishes as I’ve already made them! Putting my affairs in order is important to me so I can get on with living my life! If you were unable to speak for yourself, who would you want to speak for you? And more importantly, what health care decisions would you want them to make?”
– Spoken by a Gold Coast Community member
Advance care planning is invaluable because it ensures your voice is heard if medical decisions have to be made for you. Having a plan means your friends, family, doctors and health team aren’t guessing about what’s important to you or what an acceptable outcome is for your life. The plan can then be uploaded to your My Health Record and your Queensland Health Record if it is needed for your health care.
