Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let others know your future health and personal care preferences so that they can speak for you, if you can't speak for yourself.
 

Follow these 5 steps to advance care planning...
 
1. THINK: About your values, wishes, and beliefs, and your understanding of your care and prostate cancer treatment.

​2. LEARN: About different prostate cancer treatments and what they can and can't do.

​3. DECIDE: Who will be your substitute decision-maker. Who is willing and able to speak for you if you can't speak for yourself?

4. TALK: About your wishes with your subtitute decision-maker, loved ones and health care team.

​5. RECORD: Your wishes. It's a good idea to write down or make a recording of your wishes.
