A good death

540 views

Published on

A good death examines dying and death from a design and user experience perspective. The project re imagines legal forms such as living wills and durable power of attorney to improve the emotionally complex process of End of Life planning. The project challenges it’s users to explore and create end of life experiences. It considers the role of interactive technologies and strives to design a dynamic and unique experience-based journey through EoL decisions to encourage more open, comfortable, and
proactive End of Life planning. A Good Death is a toolkit that aims to clarify difficult choices and encourage dialogue among families and friends. The project leverages the comfort, privacy, and flexibility of online spaces to reduce the stigma of death offline. The project responds to the legal and economic forces that shape these decisions as well as the cultural and religious beliefs that define an individual’s role in their own death and dying experience.

HEALTH CARE DIRECTIVES living will DNR ORDERS organ doantion durable power of at torney of health care Organ Donation Body Disposition ADVANCE DIRECTIVES health care declaration anatomical gifts medical power of attorney medical directive designation of surrogate These are a broad term used to describe health care documents that includes both a health care declaration and a durable power of attorney for health care. It is currently used in more than one-third of the states.A legal document in which you state your wishes about life support and other kinds of medical treatments. The document takes effect if you can’t communicate your own health care wishes. A living will is more limited than a health care power of attorney. It generally applies only when you are unable to speak for yourself, and you are terminally ill or permanently unconscious. It also only gives written instructions about certain things that might happen and does not cover every health care situation that could come up. This means it may not cover your situation when you need it. With a living will, you cannot choose an agent or proxy to make decisions for you or be sure that your wishes are carried out. Some people who do not wish to receive life-prolonging treatment when close to death -- most likely those who are already critically ill -- may also want to prepare a “do not resuscitate” order, or DNR order. If a medical emergency Organ donations are often referred to as “anatomical gifts”. All fifty states have passed some version of the Uniform Anatomical Gift Act, generally providing that you may make a gift of your organs and tissues during your lifetime with the A legal document in which you give another person permission to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to make those decisions yourself.

  7. 7. YES NOOR SKIPOR Now that you have choosen a person you can trust with your health care issues, it’s important that you share your decision with this person. Would you like to send him a message? To: Subject: Health Care Proxy! SEND Hey I have decided to make you my health care proxy. I trust you to make health care decisions as I would for myself if I lose the ability to make them. I choose you because you are reliable and will uphold my wishes when I am unable to. To continue this partnership, I would like to have a meaningful conversation with you! I started a dialogue about my end-of-life intentions through agoodeath (link) . Will you be my proxy?
  8. 8. DID 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 body 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.
