I am passionate about:
Living life to the full and helping people to receive the care that matches with what they would have wanted.
A little known fact about me is:
I spent 3 months in a remote part of Ghana, as an Assistant Project Manager, building a ranger's station in a remote national park with young adults as part of a youth development program.

"It takes a village to raise a child."
I am currently implementing the advance care planning strategy for Victoria. This involves engaging with health services, overseeing projects to support implementation and considering a public awareness campaign to support people to think about advance care planning and "have the conversation".
I love this idea and think it could translate well to other areas where we are trying to effect behaviour change. I was thinking of the current IDEO Challenge - How might we re-imagine the end of life? Using the incentive model to link activities that are necessary, but uncomfortable, with positive activities that are a drawcard is something worth considering.
I loved reading through your idea and I'm so glad you've got the opportunity to scale-up your great concept.
I really like this idea and would like to see it developed further. A key issue to consider is how this document can be found when it is needed (the person won't be able to tell you they have an advance care plan). How would a hospital or ambulance etc be able to retrieve it so that it could be activated?
