Advanced care planning information for health professionals
Mercy Health offers advance care planning information for patients in line with legislative requirements of the Victorian Medical Treatment Planning and Decisions Act 2016. In some instances, we may be able to help patients commence or complete an advance care directive. We also encourage our patients to identify their medical treatment decision maker and consider appointing that person using the medical treatment decision maker appointment form.
When referring to any Mercy Health service, we request that health professionals provide any existing advance care planning documentation with the referral form.
