Palliative and End of life care experiences of people of African and Caribbean dEscent (PEACE)
Many deaths occurred amongst people of African and Caribbean descent during the pandemic. It is known that access to good end-of-life care is often poor for this group, however what is not known, is why this happens and how it can be changed. This study intends to address this gap in our understanding and aims to help improve end-of-life care for people of African and Caribbean descent.
We would like to interview relatives of people of African and Caribbean descent, who died during the pandemic (not necessarily as a direct result of COVID-19).
What will I be asked to do?
You will be asked to take part in a one to one discussion with the researcher and discuss your experiences and views on the care that both your relatice and you as a family member/carer received during the last year of life.
All information will be anonymised, and no individuals will be identified in any reports produced. The project has been approved by the Newcastle University Research Ethics Committee and is funded by the National Institute for Health Research Policy Research Programme.
When and where?
The discussion will be at a convenient date and time for you and either take place over the phone, or online via Zoom or Teams.
Will I get anything for taking part?
As a thank you for taking part, you will receive a £25 Love to Shop voucher.
