Research shows that Advance Care Planning (ACP) improves quality of life and quality end of life care. Advance Care Planning involves a process of reflection and communication where a person reflects and shares with others what is important to their quality of life.  It provides an opportunity for individuals to start conversations with their families, a Substitute Decision Maker and possibly the health care team about their personal beliefs and values; also to consider options about their care if they were to become mentally incapable of giving consent or refusing treatment or care. 

This course is designed for the public audience with a view to providing information and supporting conversations within and among family members about advance care planning and clarifying how it is shaped by Ontario legislation.
