This chapter discusses the purpose and use of advance directives (ADs) and advance care planning (ACP) within the context of ESRD. It also presents empirical evidence about the degree to which ADs and ACP have met their intended goals, interventions to enhance the use and value of ADs and ACP, and new research that helps define how to initiate and facilitate effective ACP for patients with ESRD.
