Advance Care Planning


CPG Advance Care Planning Guidelinesacp

In May 2016, the GRPCC Clinical Practice Group developed Advance Care Planning Guidelines. The purpose of advance care planning guidelines is to support clinical staff to “have the conversation” with clients and caregivers about end of life decision making, engage clients and their families in decisions about their care and help them to undertake advance care planning.  For more CPG guidelines click here.

Dying to Talk dying to talk

Dying to Talk encourages Australians of all ages and levels of health to talk about dying.

Despite being something that touches everyone, death doesn’t receive enough visibility. Dying to Talk aims to reach into the community to normalise dying in Australia and to help Australians work out what’s right for them at the end of their lives.

Having a conversation with your loved ones about your end-of-life wishes will help them to make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to communicate your wishes. The Dying to Talk Discussion Starter guides you through talking with your loved ones.
