*Advance care planning is a general term that describes the process one undertakes to plan for his or her medical future. This includes: 1) learning about medical conditions that may occur, as well as treatment options for addressing them; 2) thinking about what goals, beliefs, and/or values are important and relevant for such treatment decisions; 3) formulating one's wishes regarding potential treatment decisions; 4) communicating those wishes (and ideally the rationale behind them) to those most likely to be involved in such decisions; and 5) designating someone to serve as one's surrogate decision-maker.
