People might make a variety of advance decisions that might apply to a range of issues about their health, welfare, finances, or other personal matters. This chapter concentrates on the advance refusal of treatment. It provides background to advance decisions and care planning for end of life, looking also at the context of English law, society, and culture. It looks at related topics such as Advance Decisions to Refuse Treatment (ADRT) and children, decisions relating to cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and assisted suicide. Lastly, it looks forward to raising public and professional awareness, education, and professional development. The discussion also notes that people in England and Wales now have a legal right to refuse even life sustaining treatment.
