Avi commented on A Celebration of Life in the ICU

Thanks for reaching out Ken. How's it going so far? If you would like to collaborate, please let me know. Your project is much needed to breath life back into the ICU.

Thanks kay ess. It is a lost opportunity to only celebrate life after the person is gone. We truly have to change the conversation around death and dying. Support for the patient should also involve their loved ones as I see too many family members struggle with guilt and pain of losing a loved one.

Agreed. I think every geriatric patient being checked in to a hospital, nursing home or skilled nursing facility could have a VR journey (incorporated w ACP Decisions) with their loved ones regardless of the acuity or severity of illness. Each lost opportunity to explore and connect with their fears/wishes/aspirations, is a failure of our medicalized system.
