The idea behind the app or web based resource is a resource for care provider, doctors, allied health, chaplain, social work to be able to communicate with patients with aphasia regarding advanced care planning issues. Advanced care planning issues could include; power of attorney, treatment course, pain management, use of I.V fluids/feeding by tube etc. There is currently no comprehensive resource to facilitate this discussion in detail so patients with aphasia have little say in end of life care and planning.
