Submission to the DHHS Advanced Care Planning position paper

Carers Victoria's feedback on the planning and implementation of the government’s proposed legislative changes in the position paper ‘Simplifying medical treatment decision making and advance care planning’.

Unpaid (mostly family) carers play a key role in medical treatment decision making, yet Carers Victoria is regularly contacted by carers expressing a great deal of distress about health practitioners’ lack of involvement of them or their relative in significant medical treatment decision making.

Carers Victoria acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and pays respect to elders both past and present.
