Advance Care Planning (ACP) in Pediatrics
This document provides you with an explanation of what Advance Care Planning (ACP) is and also offers you suggestions for conducting ACP discussions with children and parents. ACP discussions are different from regular consultations or conversations. ACP discussions explore how a child and his/her parents approach life and what they consider to be important. The purpose of this exploration is to better align decisions about the child’scare and treatment with the values, preferences and needs of the child and family.
