Objectives: To assess feasibility, acceptability, and clinical sensibility of a novel survey, the Advance Care Planning (ACP) Engagement Survey in various health care settings. Setting: A target sample of 50 patients from each of primary care, hospital, cancer care, and dialysis care settings. Participants: A convenience sample of patients without cognitive impairment who could speak and read English was recruited. Patients 50 years and older were eligible in primary care; patients 80 and older or 55 years and older with clinical markers of advanced chronic disease were recruited in hospital; patients aged 19 and older were recruited in cancer and renal dialysis centres. Outcomes: We assessed feasibility, acceptability and clinical sensibility of the ACP Engagement Survey using a 6-point scale. The ACP Engagement Survey measures ACP processes (knowledge, contemplation, self-efficacy, readiness) on 5-point Likert scales and actions (yes/no). Results: 196 patients (38 to 96 years old, 50.5% women) participated. Mean (±standard deviation) time to administer was 48.8 ±19.6 minutes. Mean acceptability scores ranged from 3.2±1.3 in hospital to 4.7±0.9 in primary care and mean relevance ranged from 3.5±1.0 in hospital to 4.9±0.9 in dialysis centres (p values ; Usage notes
