We commissioned a series of films to introduce anticipatory care planning, how it can help to deliver person-centred care, and its benefits for people, families and their carers.
A homeless person’s story – Duncan is 41 and has been in children’s homes, hostels, psychiatric care or homeless for most of his life.
A child’s story – Jack has a life-limiting condition. His parents have been told it is unlikely he’ll get to school age.
A carer’s story – Fiona was caring for her husband with cancer until he died. Now she is caring for her father alone.
An individuals story – Jim is in his fifties and is in the late stages of kidney failure caused by diabetes. His condition is terminal.
An ACP nurse’s story – Evelyn was admitted to hospital for the fourth time and diagnosed with Menieres diease. She is focussed on her illness rather than her recovery.

Anticipatory Care Planning (ACP) is a key workstream within the Living Well in Communities portfolio, focussed on building improved models of care across Scotland.
Our next workshop takes place on Wednesday 16th November at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.
The aim of this event is to discuss current ACP initiatives and help influence next year’s priorities.
The morning sessions give practitioners the opportunity to showcase the innovative work they are leading locally, supporting individuals of all ages. Further details about the workshops will follow soon.
The afternoon session will be a unique opportunity to view ‘Seven Songs for a Long Life’, Dr Amy Hardie‘s critically acclaimed documentary exploring our changing relationship with death.
