An article by Izumi et al. (2019) in the current issue describes the effect of a brief educational intervention for nurses to increase confidence in their knowledge of advance care planning (ACP). The description of this project offers a useful exemplar for those wishing to implement ACP interventions. This commentary raises questions about the role of nurses in ACP and the design of effective, sustainable ACP programs within complex health systems.
