19 Conclusion Results of this survey have identified: More participants in this survey completed a Will than any other instrument Of the true advance directives, more participants completed a Power of Attorney than the healthcare and value or choice instruments The age group which most frequently assisted others with these documents was aged A low percentage of participants engaged in decision- making under a formal POA or POG Majority of participants are interested in learning more about advance directives. 19

20 Some things we haven’t discussed The affect of other sociodemographic characteristics on completion rates, e.g. gender, education, wealth, occupation, marital status Which documents were completed singularly or together, e.g. POA + POG, POA only The format that most people would prefer to learn about ADs, e.g. online, face-to-face, telephone or other 20
