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.
