What does advance health care planning include?

Advance health care planning includes:
• Getting information on the types of life-sustaining treatments that are available.
• Deciding what kinds of treatment you would or would not want to have if you were diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
• Sharing your personal values and decisions with your loved ones and your doctors.
• Writing down your plans in advance directives so they will be ready if needed.
