DWD Central Coast quarterly meeting

When: Friday 18 August 10 am to 12 noon

Topic: Advance care directives: a local perspective – Procedures at public hospitals on the Central Coast

Peter_Cleasby_-webSpeaker: Mr Peter Cleasby, Chairperson, Central Coast Local Health District Advance Care Planning Committee

The focus is on the importance of having an advance care directive, which clearly sets out your wishes regarding your health care, in the event that you become unable to speak for yourself. More specifically, your wishes about the health care treatments you would want to have if you are hospitalised, and those you would want to refuse.

Are you concerned about whether your health care treatment preferences, as listed in your Advance Care Directive, would be respected if you were admitted to hospital? Our speaker will explain the relevant guidelines and the procedures followed at Gosford and Wyong Public Hospitals.

and Ms Bev Symons, Co-ordinator of Dying with Dignity NSW Central Coast Group, will provide an update on the NSW Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill (2017) and the latest campaign news.

Everyone is welcome.
