Important life choices are planned, not left to chance

Chief clinical adviser at Australian Digital Health Agency Dr Steve Hambleton speaks with John Deeks to mark National Advance Care Planning week and discuss the need to think about advanced care.

Advance Care Planning relates to the healthcare you would or would not like to receive if you were to become seriously ill or injured and are unable to communicate your preferences to your loved ones and doctors. 

Dr Hambleton explains the simple steps that will give you confidence that your end-of-life wishes are known and respected. For more information visit www.advancecareplanning.org.au and www.myhealthrecord.gov.au.
