Authentic ‘person-centred’ care involves truly understanding a person’s preferences, wishes and values.  But what if that person is no longer able to decide what they want, or communicate this?  In Australia, most states and territories (with the exception of NSW and Tasmania) have enacted legislation to support the creation of, and reliance on, advance care directives (also known by other names, such as advance care plans).
