In Tasmania, an advance care plan is made up of:
1. An enduring guardian
A document appointing another person or persons to make health care decisions for you in the event that you are no longer capable of making health care decisions for yourself. By appointing your own enduring guardian before losing mental capacity, you decide who will be your guardian and how you want decisions made for you.
2. Advance Care Directive
A document to guide future medical decisions only when you lose the ability to make or communicate your medical treatment decisions yourself.
