Dr Alessandro Bosco, Dr Ben Bowers and colleagues at the Cambridge Palliative and End-of-Life Care Research Group (PELiCam) are conducting a research study investigating the way community nurses working in district and/or care home nursing teams have been providing end-of-life care since the start of the pandemic.
We are inviting 72 community nurses to tell us about their views and experiences of making changes and often taking on new roles and responsibilities. Our study will identify priority areas for supporting and developing community nurses’ extended clinical roles in end-of-life care.
We would like to invite interested UK-based community nursing colleagues to take part. Participants must be registered nurses and have supported adult patients at their end of life in the community within the last three months.
Please share this information with any colleagues you think might be interested.
This study involves completing a short survey and taking part in one research focus group conversation by Zoom or Teams. This will be facilitated by a member of the Cambridge Palliative & End of Life Care Research Group, University of Cambridge. The facilitated research conversation will last about 60 minutes and involves discussing your views and experiences of providing end-of-life care. We would like to offer a £40 Amazon voucher in recognition of your time commitment.
Thanks to all those who have contributed!
Update 5 May 2023: we have now approached the end of recruitment for our study on community nurses’ experiences of end-of-life care, and we would like to thank you for all your contributions in this very important project. We will be able to share study findings as we complete data analysis.
If you have any questions regarding the study, please contact Dr Alessandro Bosco:
