Learn more about the role of digital technologies and data in dying and end-of-life care in this two-part webinar.
As consumers, the digital world has brought convenience, connection, and delight. As patients, it offers education, empowerment, and transformation. However, has this potential been realised when it comes to dying and end-of-life? COVID-19 has highlighted the limitations of digital communication in meeting our complex social hard-wiring. The global pandemic has also brought end-of-life considerations and nuanced debates about medical evidence into everyday conversation.
What is the impact of big data and digital technology on a cradle-to-grave health service? What services do we need to create to enable control in the final days of our lives? How can we craft a digital legacy for our mourners and descendants? Could digital technologies change our definition of life worth living? In this two-part webinar, we will explore these questions and more with leading experts in the field.
- Understand how technology has allowed those at the end of life to communicate with family
- Be aware of the impact of social media on the social experience of death and mourning
- Evaluate the extent to which end-of-life decisions are captured effectively in the UK
- Discuss how COVID-19 has affected palliative care teams and what changes are likely to persist
- Appreciate how new data may have changed arguments around assisted dying
- Explore how digital technologies may be able to reduce physician burden in high mortality or moral hazard situations
