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.

  • 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.

  • You are eligible to participate if you are/have:
    o 1.  A UK resident.
    o 2. Over 18 years old.
