Background Last year Byw Nawr commissioned the research and development of a new public facing website. The resource drew on expertise from Dying Matters, Hospice UK, the Digital Legacy Association and a number of healthcare professionals.

Aim The aim of the website is to make Advance Care Planning accessible to the general public though a clear information architecture and videos.

Methods By working collaboratively, a website containing over 10 000 words was created in English. It was then translated into Welsh. A small stakeholder group provided ongoing advice and a wider stakeholder group was called upon at the end of the website’s build for review.

Results and Conclusion Later this year Byw Nawr will evaluate the impact of the resource. It is hoped that the results will be displayed as a poster or through a presentation at the Hospice UK conference in November.
