In a nutshell: This article presents an overview of studies on the effects of advance care planning and gains insight in the effectiveness of different types of advance care planning.

Complex advance care planning interventions may be more effective in meeting patients’ preferences than written documents alone. More studies are needed with an experimental design, in different settings, including the community.
