Children and Young Peoples Advanced Care Plan (CYPACP)
The children and young people's advanced care plan (CYPACP) is a nationally recognised advanced care plan (ACP) for children and young people with life limiting (LLC) or life threatening conditions (LTC). The national CYPACP collaborative developed the form and much of the UK have adopted it. Our Network (YHCPCN) endorse and support the adoption and use of the form across the region. It is hoped that all services supporting children and families with LLC or LTC will sign up to the collaborative and use the CYPACP. This will ensure consistency for families and will mean that the form will be recognised across the region and wider. If a family go on holiday elsewhere in the UK where they use the CYPACP the form will be recognised and the family will not have to tell their story over and over. This reduces duplication and ensures consistency for professionals and families.
