This chapter provides a background and summary of the preferred priorities for care (PPC) document, evaluation and benefit of using PPC, case histories and scenarios, education, training, and mentoring. It also describes one having the proper conversation and communication skills and offers suggestions for getting started with PPC. PPC is an example of an Advance Care Planning document used to identify an individual's preferences and wishes at the end of life. It can be regularly updated and is held by the individual and can be taken with them if they receive care in different settings. It consists of three main questions providing information about choices, preferences, others involved in care, and what matters to the person that can inform others involved in their care. It has been used since 2007 in England, in various settings, with ongoing evaluation and training resources.
