SA Health has engaged the State Government’s online consultation hub, YourSAy, to gather views from South Australians on the redesigned Advance Care Directive Form and Guide.
Advance Care Directives are essential for empowering South Australians to record their values and wishes and make clear legal arrangements for their future health care, lifestyle and personal matters. These documents have been designed to make it easier for people to complete them without the assistance of a lawyer or other professional.
The public consultation seeks community views about the new designed form, the ease of completing Advance Care Directives and how to make the process clearer and more user-friendly.
People who are 18 years or older are invited to complete the online survey at https://yoursay.sa.gov.au/advanced-care-directives-redesigning-the-form-and-guide to share their views on the improved Advance Care Directive documents.
The consultation is open until 5.00pm on Friday, 15 July 2022.
If you are interested in attending an online or in-person consultation session, please register your interest by emailing Health.AdvanceCarePlanning@sa.gov.au.
The consultation feedback will inform the final messaging and imagery of the Advance Care Directive Form and Guide.
