Participant Information Sheet

A survey of psychological services in UK hospices: what exists, what works and what may not?

What is the purpose of this study?

Psychological distress is common for people living with terminal illness, and for their family carers. But evidence suggests that for some people receiving palliative care, including those in hospices, access to psychological support is limited. We are running this national survey to explore how psychological services are provided in hospices across the UK to help us understand more about current delivery of and access to these services. This could potentially inform future efforts to develop best practice. This study is being conducted as part of a student project in partial fulfilment of a PhD. The online survey will be open from Tuesday 12th November to Tuesday 24th December 2019.
