Advance Care Planning

‘At least 50% of all deaths in Australia each year are clinically expected because of advanced disease. In their last year of life, Australians with advanced disease will average eight hospital admissions and incur a 60%–70% chance of dying in hospital. More than half may be denied adequate opportunity to discuss end-of-life care wishes or have them fully enacted.’
