About Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a person-centered, ongoing process of communication that facilitates individual understanding, reflection and discussion of their goals, values and preferences for future healthcare decisions.  This process is applicable to all adults, from the healthy to those who have advanced illness from which they won’t recover.

ACP Michigan is a network of individuals and organizations working to provide and grow ACP services in their communities.  Foundational support is provided by the Michigan Health Council and Michigan Primary Care Consortium to develop this network focused on increasing statewide access to advance care planning.  ACP Michigan serves as the leader in education and guidance for those seeking to implement ACP in their organization or community.  ACP Michigan is a neutral, statewide resource to help individuals make connections and get the resources needed to build and ACP framework and foster change in a sustainable fashion.
