Workshop and Seminars

General Advance Care Planning (ACP) Facilitators Course for General Practitioners

Click here to view brochure.

The Advance Care Planning Facilitators Course for General Practitioners is a two-day workshop. The General ACP Facilitators’ Course trains participants to facilitate the documentation of Advance Care Plans (ACPs) for generally healthy adults. Participants are taught interviewing skills to explore an individual’s stage of health, past experiences and values surrounding life, illness and dying. Based on this exploration, facilitators will then help individuals to articulate their future care preferences into an ACP. This plan provides guidance to the medical team when the individual loses mental capacity. The conversation also allows individuals to appoint a Nominated Healthcare Spokesperson (NHS), and clarify relevant health matters. Participants will also learn about other advance directives.

Physicians must pass the final assessment to be certified as General ACP Facilitators.

Registration closes on 18 October 2018. For details, please email to
