Advanced Care Planning in COPD

Has anyone developed a document for use in Advance Care planning (ACP) in COPD?

Locally our Hospice in conjunction with the community palliative care team is about to launch a generic ACP document, i have been asked to review. This is the background document to it:

The isle of Wight have also developed a generic document:

> Download the Isle of Wight Advanced Care Plan

Has anyone used this? What do people think of it? So far palliative care for COPD has been developed largely based on work done in cancer services, and often with success. Will this generic document also be sufficient or are we at a cross-road here where a format tailored to COPD is more suitable?
