If one of your clients asks you about Advance Care Planning, Advance Directives or living wills, do you have a thorough understanding of the legal framework that underpins them? Do you understand the relevance to your client group, regardless of age, and what systems exist in New Zealand to best support their creation, sharing and use?

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process of discussion and shared planning for future health care. ACP is becoming an increasingly common discussion between medical teams and their patients. This webinar will introduce ACP, consider its value for clients and their whānau and will draw on a number of practical and case law examples.

Topics include:

  • Legal frameworks, including the use of advance directives and the interplay with living wills and enduring powers of attorney
  • The framework for medical decision making in New Zealand and where Advance Care Plans and Advance Directives sit within this framework
  • Implementation of Advance Care Plans across the country
  • Key tips and tricks to consider in your practice.
