The Health Care Consumers’ Association began work on the project “Advance Care Planning: A Conversation for Everyone” in November 2014.


An aspect of this project was to promote Advance Care Planning (ACP) to people with intellectual disabilities. We worked with ADACAS to develop a workbook that allows people with intellectual disabilities to demonstrate their consideration of the issues involved in ACP decision-making. This resource responded to a priority need identified in discussion with the community involved, and is to our knowledge the first resource of its kind in Australia. 


These resources are here for you to use.
