Overcoming cultural difference in Advance Care Planning

New research from Advance Care Planning Australia has highlighted how cultural background affects our attitudes and behaviours to advance care planning. The study found that people born overseas were less likely to complete an Advance Care Directive (ACD) when compared to those born is Australia (22% vs 29%). However they were more likely to have an advance care plan documented for them by a health professional or family member, than Australia-born people (46% vs 35%).
