Advance Care Planning in End of Life Care

Sarah Russell

Oxford University Press

All clinicians have a part to play in advance care planning (ACP) conversations. This chapter covers some of the communication issues, evidence, models, and practical examples for ACP conversations. Discussions are highlighted as key to helping people live well until they die as well as they prepare and plan for the end of their life. Communication is defined, facilitative skills identified, as well as barriers and blocks to communication discussed. Communication skills. Models. and example scenarios are explored. ACP imagines and contemplate ones’ future death. This may be in the next few weeks, months, or years. It is about helping people to live well (wherever that may be) until they die within the context of their life and relationships with that or those who matter to them.

Keywords:   advance care planning, communication skills, communication models, helping people, relationships, future death
