Advanced Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is a process for making and writing down future health care wishes in advance if you become seriously ill and are unable to make or communicate those preferences for yourself.


The Advanced Care Directive can record your values, life goals and preferred outcomes, or directions about care and treatments. It includes appointing a Medical Enduring Power of Attorney and a statement of your choices, and will guide your family and doctor when making medical decisions on your behalf.


We have an Advanced Care Planning nurse that attends Point Lonsdale Medical Group monthly who can help you discuss these issues with your family and doctor and complete the documentation with you.


We also have written information sheets including Appointing a Medical Enduring Power of Attorney, and Advanced Care Directive forms for you to read through and complete in your own time, or bring them in and discuss with your doctor.


These forms are available from your doctor, reception or you can complete them on line here.
