I have watched demented relatives receive aggressive healthcare at the insistence of their spouse or child; care that they had stated they would not want. As an epidemiologist, I started researching ways that a cogent adult could specify only palliative care in case s/he became demented. Currently, the best communication method is to create videos as part of a MyDirective.com advance care directive(ACD). But most people are too busy and the topic is not pleasant, so they don't get around to creating an ACD.
When I created my MyDirectives ACD, I noticed that filling in the music request feature was a relatively upbeat experience. Contemplating the music I would like to hear if demented or dying was the most cheerful part of planning.
Since creating playlists for various occasions is a common topic in the media, bringing a Final Playlist into the public space should be much easier than the ACD topic. Some celebrities posting their Final Playlist on various media, tweeting, discussing them on late night television shows or talk radio might make the concept a topic of normal conversation and FaceBook posting. At the least, it would make the topic current.
If FaceBook, Pandora and other platforms could be persuaded to link to a page on MyDirectives, that would encourage people to actually create an ACD. Technically, a focus group should give input on questions of whether an account needs to be created to post on the public page and other web details that could be off-putting.
