Advanced Care Planning at the end of Life by Keri Thomas, Ben Lobo and Karen Detering Second Edition (OUP 2018). 313 pp
Advance Care Planning (ACP) is an essential part of end of life care in the UK and most developed countries. It enables more people to live well and die as they would choose, and has significant implications for the individual person, their family and carers, and our wider society. In the context of an ageing population and increasing possibilities for medical interventions, ACP is a particularly important aspect of quality care.
