Abstract INTRODUCTION: Although recommended, the implementation of early advance care planning is suboptimal in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients. Barriers to advance care planning include healthcare professionals' and patients' reluctance, and uncertainty about the right time to initiate a discussion. AIM OF THE STUDY: To determine how often advance care planning was initiated, and the content of the discussion in a first routine palliative care consultation integrated within a multidisciplinary management programme.
