Advance Care Planning in Canada was created in 2008 to raise awareness of the importance of advance care planning and to equip Canadians with the tools they need to effectively engage in the process.
The Initiative also has a goal is to provide professionals/health care providers with the tools they need so they can facilitate and engage in the process of advance care planning with their clients.
Along with a National Framework, the Initiative has developed the Speak Up campaign to provide tools and resources to patients and families, health professionals and community organizations. This interactive workbook has been developed as part of that campaign, and as a tool that integrates with a palliative approach to care.
The BC Centre for Palliative Care provides leadership to promote excellence in palliative and end of life care. The Centre collaborates with partners across BC to improve care and services for people with serious, advanced life-limiting illness and their families
