Today I chat with Dr Merran Cooper, advance care planning expert and health tech innovator.
Doctors are exposed to people at all stages of their lives, including their last days and hours.
Merran’s experiences working as a doctors in city and outback medical settings highlighted inadequacies of existing methods of recording people’s wishes about how they want their declining health and end of life to be managed.
In this interview, Merran shares with us her personal and professional motivations for setting up Touchstone Life Care. She explains how she has worked with industry experts to build a digital advance care planning system that records people’s wishes around their treatment and lifestyle for when they, their family and carers find themselves at this point.
So if you are looking to find out more about how this planning helps individuals, organisations and society as a whole, the insights Merran shares are invaluable.
This is not a paid promotion video. We invited Merran because we thought it an important topic.
