We have now finished recruiting people to complete the bereavement survey - thank you so much if you participated. We are currently analysing the data everyone provided - over 700 people completed the survey.
If you completed the survey and indicated you'd be happy to fill in follow-up questionnaires, you will hear from us soon. Thank you for sharing your experiences and views.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY
We are doing this research to understand the grief experiences and support needs of people who have been bereaved either due to COVID-19 or another cause of death during the pandemic.
We are interested in:
Your experiences at the end of life of your loved one (family or close friend)
Your experiences of grieving
Any support that you feel you have needed during your bereavement and what support you have received
Anything else you would like to share about your experiences
We hope that your responses to our questions will help us to identify ways to improve end of life care during the pandemic and the support that is available for people who are bereaved.
We will also provide information about services that could support you during this time.
This survey is being carried out by Cardiff University and the University of Bristol, with funding from UK Research & Innovation via the Economic and Social Research Council.
