This chapter presents an example of Advance Care Planning (ACP) from Victoria, Australia, the Living and Dying in Style project. It considers the Respecting Patient Choices Program from Austin Health, Melbourne, Victoria, the Respecting Patient Choices training programme, and the impact of the Living and Dying in Style projects and guidelines for the future. The discussion notes that dying can be hard work; that there are conversations that everybody needs to have, and nobody wants to start; that ACP provides a framework to overcome this difficulty; that the Respecting Patient Choices Program is an efficient method of ACP; and such preparation for end of life care contributes to living and dying in style.
