Advance Care Planning in NSW

In NSW the components of an advance care plan are:

  • Enduring Guardian – legally appoint a substitute decision maker under the Guardianship Act 1987. Must be in the approved form.
  • Advance Care Directive – to provide specific information relating to your wishes, values, and any treatments you would not wish to receive. Can be on a form, or in some other way, for example a letter. Supported under common law.
