Advance care planning (ACP) is becoming more widely used as part of a drive to improve personalized care planning, but there is still more work to be done. Electronic Palliative Care Co-ordination systems (EPaCCs) have proved to be very effective in some areas but there are many barriers to be overcome before they are universally available. This chapter covers recent developments leading to the wider integration of ACP into primary care. These include policy initiatives, educational opportunities, information technology (IT), professional quality control and regulation, financial and business incentives, and the Compassionate Community movement. The chapter includes an overview of issues surrounding ACP in primary care and in the community.
