Advance Care Planning Toolkit (NEoLCP)


The ADSE toolkit has been designed to assist care providers help empower people to discuss, and make plans for, the care which they prefer to receive at the end of their lives, including decisions about where they wish to die.

ADSE is an abbreviation for “Ask, Document, Share and Evaluate”; which summarises the steps recommended for care providers when preparing to support the ACP process. Use of these steps enables care providers to gather the information and guidance required.

The toolkit is aligned closely with other NEoLCP materials, including “Planning for your future care: a guide” (NEoLCP, February 2012).
