San GP Dr Jordan Sandral discusses end of life care on radio 2GB
Death is something most of don’t like to think of nor talk about.
Unfortunately even fewer plan for it with less than 15% of Australians having a documented end of life care plan which would explain what medical intervention and other choices they want. Without a plan they may not get their preferences, and sadly their families may simply not know.
GP’s in medical centres are at the front line trying to ensure their patients prepare an Advance Care Directive. Dr Jordan Sandral is one of the six GP’s at the Sydney Adventist Hospital’s Fox Valley Medical and Dental Centre which treats about 19000 patients a year.
Dr Sandal discusses advance care planning with radio 2GB's Steve Price.
