Key Messages

1. Our studies provide evidence that patients’ end of life care preferences change over time.

2. This suggests that most patients do not hold strongly held preferences regarding what forms of end of life care they want.

3. We discuss the implications of these findings and propose that it is time to rethink about how ACP can best be implemented to provide quality end of life care.
