The NSW Ministry for Health has helpfully published a booklet entitled Making an Advance Care Directive, which includes a precedent form.

The form includes prompts in relation to:

  • Personal values about dying
  • Directions about medical care, with some specific care types referred to
  • Organ donation, including ante-mortem treatment to facilitate organ donation
  • Capacity confirmation by a treating health professional.

The Advance Care Directive is currently being trialled as part of a project by South Eastern Sydney Local Health District. Following the evaluation of this project, the NSW Ministry of Health will consider if any changes to the form are required.
