Following on from a successful digital conference in 2021, the Advance Care Planning International (ACP-i) Committee is excited to announce a series of webinars in 2022, focusing on how different healthcare systems are implementing advance care planning.
Each of these webinars will put a spotlight on one country, with invited speakers giving presentations which will investigate the different components and ingredients that go into successful ACP programs in their country or region. In other words, exploring “what’s in the ACP pill?” Webinars will be one hour in duration, with one or two expert presenters and time for panel discussion and Q&A.
The first of these webinars will go down under, with presentations from Australia (Tuesday March 22nd 10pm-11pm AEDT) and Aotearoa/New Zealand (Wednesday March 23rd 10am-11am). The webinars are free to attend, but registration is required through the ACP-i website.
The Australian webinar on Tuesday March 22nd will feature Jill Mann (Barwon Health ACP Program Manager) and Dr Leyton Miller (Queensland Health Palliative Care Consultant), with the session facilitated by Dr Craig Sinclair (University of New South Wales).

In a stroke of good planning (or was that good fortune?), the Australian webinar will also occur during National Advance Care Planning Week 2022. Advance Care Planning Australia coordinates this annual awareness-raising week, with a series of events being held around Australia, in person and online. The key message is ‘Your Choice. Now and Always.’ To find out more about events in your area, visit the Advance Care Planning Australia website.
As part of 2022 National Advance Care Planning Week, we hope you can attend and participate in this global conversation.
