This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The objective is to examine whether end-of-life care involving advance care planning, as compared to end-of-life care without or with a less structured form of advance care planning, results in fewer hospital admissions or less use of treatments with a primary life-prolonging or curative intent near the end of life and fewer hospital deaths.
