Universities conduct research into grief experiences and bereavement support during the pandemic
Cardiff University and the University of Bristol are conducting research into grief experiences and support needs of people whose loved ones have died during the pandemic.
The aim is to identify ways of improving care provision to all at the end of life, inclusive of bereavement on a wider scale, which complements the ethos of St Catherine’s and hospice care; that everyone should experience a good quality of life until the end of life, and bereavement support should be available when people are ready to access it, in ways which best suit their needs.
Anyone aged 18 or over who has experienced the loss of a close family member, friend or other loved one who died in the UK since the 16th March 2020 is invited to take part in the survey; whether the death was COVID-related or not.
St Catherine’s Hospice is not involved in this study and you do not need to have experienced the hospice’s care and support to take part; we wish to raise awareness of valuable research such as this and give our communities the opportunity and option to get involved if they wish to.
