Quests By Community: Taking Control of Your Future Care Choices in Australia

What is Advance Care Planning? Tonight’s guest is Xanthe Sansome, who begins by reversing the words of the question to explain that it is, Planning for Care in Advance.

So it is; Thinking about What matters to you, What is important to you, what treatment and care you would want in the future, thinking about that, talking about that, and writing that down – now, so that if you were not able to make a care or treatment decision for yourself, that information is available to those around you.

Xanthe Sansome is the National Program Director for Advance Care Planning Australia.

Hosted by Ricki Spencer, a Trans Sociologist.
