This chapter provides an introduction to and national context for the importance of Advance Care Planning (ACP) in the Department of Health End of Life Care Strategy in England. It also presents background publications which have highlighted the need for ACP, issues surrounding ACP, resources to support the process of ACP, the practicalities of implementation, and further developments. ACP is delivered as a process of discussion between an individual and their care provider, irrespective of discipline, with or without their carer/family involvement. Outputs may include a statement of wishes and preferences, decisions to refuse treatment, and/or Lasting Power of Attorney. Meanwhile, guidance from Health and Social Care Staff has been published. Further work is underway in areas of education, communication, and information transfer.
