Advance Care Planning (ACP) in Canada is proud to support the Canadian long-term care (LTC) community with a number of free resources targeted  to LTC staff and administrators, residents and their families. 

All of the ACP in Canada LTC resources are produced in partnership with expert stakeholders and working groups from across Canada. We are particularly excited to work with the Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-term Care (SPA-LTC) team from McMaster University on several of these. 

Our growing list of resources includes downloadable guides, videos and web resources. 

Comprehensive guides for LTC professionals, residents and their families include Essential Conversations: A Guide to Advance Care Planning in Long-Term Care Settings and Comfort Care Rounds. 

Engaging videos for LTC professionals including All on the Same Page and recordings of our popular webinars. 

Online resources like the Advance Care Planning LTC Repository of Resources is an information hub for those working in, living at, or interacting with Canadian long-term care homes and engaging in ACP conversations.
