8th International Advance Care Planning (ACP-i) Conference

Welcome Message

Home > About >Welcome Message

The 8th International ACP-i Conference is coming to Asia for the first time and Singapore is privileged to host this event between 24th to 27th May 2023.

The conference theme is “ACP in Cultural Diversity: More Similar than Different”, highlighting our common struggles and the shared opportunities in fostering person centred care in serious illness. Understanding what matters to our patients is an ethical imperative and a universal endeavour.

The Scientific Committee is working very hard to put together a robust and tantalising programme ranging from compassionate communities, evaluation of ACP programmes, ACP in paediatrics, shared decision making in serious illness and of course, ACP in cultural diversity. Some world renowned experts who have been engaged to speak include Heather Richardson, Bud Hammes, Libby Sallnow, Carole Montgomery, Susan Hickman and Jenny Hynson. This conference will also be the first hybrid ACP-i conference featuring both an onsite conference and a virtual one. Just as we strive to promote human dignity and connect with what truly matters to our patients, we hope to transcend divides to connect people from all over the world in this shared endeavour.
