The Research and Impact Initiative on Communication in Healthcare at the University of Hong Kong (HKURIICH) are undertaking a project on the experiences and mental wellbeing of end-of-life care professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are interested in a cross-cultural comparison between Hong Kong and the United Kingdom. To investigate this, we wish to interview those who have worked in end-of-life care in the UK during the pandemic.
What does the study involve?
- We will interview you about your experiences in end-of-life care and your mental wellbeing during the pandemic.
- Interviews should take around 30 minutes and will be conducted online (over Zoom).
- Interviews will be audio-recorded and written up.
Who is eligible?
- You are eligible to participate if you are/have:
o 1. A UK resident.
o 2. Over 18 years old.
o 3. Worked in end-of-life care in any capacity (e.g., doctors, nurses, healthcare assistants, care workers, dietitians, psychiatrists, physical therapists etc.)
o 4. Worked during the COVID-19 pandemic.
