Advance Care Planning


Tim Fitzpatrick

Barwon Health ACP Nurse

Tim visits the clinic every month from Barwon Health. 

Advance Care Planning encourages individuals to have conversations with family, carers and treating doctors with regard to health treatment decisions, for a time when they may be unable to participate in their own decision-making. 

This service is offered at The Highton Clinic through Barwon Health's Respecting Patient Choices program, which:

  • Promotes an individual's understanding about their future treatment options
  • Assists individuals to document their wishes and preferences about their future medical treatment, particularly end-of-life treatment

For further information, please discuss with your doctor, or contact The Highton Clinic on 5243 5566
