Making an Anticipatory Care Plan

Planning for an expected change in your condition is called Anticipatory Care Planning.

Once you’ve had advance planning discussions, an Anticipatory Care Plan is the document you use to record the details of these discussions. With your consent, the Anticipatory Care Plan should be shared with all those involved in your care.

If you have been diagnosed with an illness that is likely to get worse, your healthcare team may think it would be helpful to make an Anticipatory Care Plan for you. If so, your healthcare team should work with you to make the Anticipatory Care Plan. If you are not asked about making an Anticipatory Care Plan but feel that this is something that is important to you, you can inform your healthcare team about your desire to make one.

The Scottish Government and Healthcare Improvement Scotland have published information about Anticipatory Care Planning, which is available here: Anticipatory Care Planning Toolkit
