Description

The emotionally complex experience of End of Life (EoL) planning can be confusing and legal paperwork like DNR forms and living wills carry a morbid stigma, leaving many of us unwilling to proactively seek out information to complete the process. Preparing for the inevitable shouldn’t have to be so daunting, so what if there was an easy, digital solution to make the planning experience more comfortable, transparent, private, and informative?

This presentation addresses three major problems that exist with current options for EoL planning and will focus on the solutions provided by the project A Good Death, a unique interactive digital toolkit designed to help you easily and comfortably explore and plan for your own EoL experience.

THE PROBLEM

1. THE DENIAL OF DEATH “...The idea of death, the fear of it, hunts the humans animal like nothing else; it is a mainspring of human activity. Activity designed largely to avoid the fatality of death, to overcome it by denying in some way that it is the final destiny for man.” Ernest Becker

Six Out Of 10 People Say They Feel Intimidated Talking To Their Families About End-of-life Decisions. Source: California Healthcare Foundation survey

2. THE CURRENT FORMS “Dying is more than a set of problems to be solved. The nature of dying is not medical, it is experiential.” Ira Byock

I, HEREBY APPOINT AS MY HEALTH CARE AGENT TO MAKE ANY AND ALL HEALTH CARE DECISIONS FOR ME, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT I STATE OTHERWISE. THE PROXY SHALL TAKE EFFECT ONLY WHEN AND IF I BECOME UNABLE TO MAKE MY OWN HEALTH CARE DECISIONS.

THE CHALLENGE

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

HIGH COST OF END OF LIFE CARE Medicare recipients spend during the five years before their death averaged about: $39,000 Individuals Source: Mount Sinai School of Medicine study $51,000 Couples $66,000 Long-term illnesses

THE SOLUTIONS

CAN DEATH BE GOOD?

1. COMPLEXITY VS. SIMPLICITY 2. VISUALIZED INFORMATION 3. CONVERSATIONAL TONE

1. COMPLEXITY VS. SIMPLICITY Lack of design thinking

A PDF TOOLKIT Tool #5 After Death Decisions to Think About Now Name & Date_______________________________________ After the death of a loved one, family and friends are often left with some tough decisions. You can help ease the pain and anxiety by making your wishes—about burial, autopsy, and organ donations—clear in advance. ORGAN AND T ISSUE DONATION D ID YOU KNOW? More than 68,000 patients are on the national organ transplant waiting list. Each day, 13 of them will die because the organs they need have not been donated. Every 16 minutes, a new name will be added to that waiting list. Organs you can donate: Heart, Kidneys, Pancreas, Lungs, Liver, Intestines. Tissue you can donate: Cornea, Skin, Bone Marrow, Heart Valves, Connective Tissue. To be transplanted, organs must receive blood until they are removed from the b ody of the donor. Therefore, it may be necessary to place the donor on a breathing machine temporarily or provide other organ-sustaining treatment. If you are older or seriously ill, you may or may not have organs or tissue suitable for transplant. Doctors evaluate the options at or near the time of death. The body of an organ donor can still be shown and buried after death. 1. Do you want to donate viable ORGANS for transplant? (Circle one) Yes Not sure No 2. If Yes, check one: ____ I will donate any organs. ____ Just the following: _______________________________ Do you want to donate viable TISSUES for transplant? (Circle one) Yes Not sure No If Yes, check one: ____ I will donate any organs. ____ Just the following: ____________________________

3. CONVERSATIONAL TONE The current content lacks a humanizing aspect. It feels cold, clinical, and not conversational.

WHAT IF you are in severe discomfort most of the time (such as nausea, diarrhea). Want Treatment 1 2 3 4 5 Do not Want Treatment

LIVING WILL Which of the following do you fear the most near the end of your life? Being in pain OR Losing the ability to think OR Being a financial burden on loved ones OR To be alone

CREATING CONVERSATIONS WHERE CONVERSATIONS ARE TABOO.
