Design Challenge: Catalyzing Communication about End-of-Life Care
10 Apr 2013 - 9:26am
== Announcing a design challenge held in conjunction with the 2013 Healthcare Experience Design Conference, brought to you by Mad*Pow and the California HealthCare Foundation ==
When surveyed about the main reasons why they had not talked to their loved ones, 41% of Californians said they had too many other things to worry about right now, and 39% said that they or their loved one didn’t want to think about death or dying.
In the face of these barriers, how can we catalyze the conversation around end-of-life care to ensure people are making their wishes known?
Anyone in the US is welcome to enter this design challenge, which will award $10,000 in prizes for inspirational solutions. Submissions are due May 10, 2013. For more details, see http://hxdconf.com/eolc
