Advancing research on advance care planning in dementia.


Authors: Van den Block L

Palliative medicine (2019)


Over the past decades, a lot has been said and written about advance care planning. But has all been said? Certainly not when it comes to dementia. While an exponential number of research studies and systematic reviews have been published on advance care planning, there is a dearth of studies on advance care planning in dementia. While many research topics could be highlighted to
improve advance care planning research in general, the aims of this editorial are to argue that dementia-specific advance care planning research is necessary and to provide ideas for future investigations in this area.
