People with serious illnesses asked to share their experience of palliative care

The qualitative survey aims to improve policy and services across the country.

PALLIATIVE CARE PATIENTS and carers are being asked to share their good and bad experiences.

Let’s Talk About is the first ever survey to ask people with illnesses that may not be cured and carers about their experiences of palliative care in Ireland.

The survey can be completed online at www.letstalk-about.org and it can be done anytime between now and 31 May. It takes 15 – 20 minutes and is confidential.

The survey is being led by the All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care (AIIHPC) with support form the HSE.

AIIHPC Director Paddie Blaney said,

We are looking for people to be honest and specific telling both their good and bad experiences of care. Each story is valuable, hundreds of stories and more will be powerful.

HSE Director of Advocacy, Greg Price said, “The HSE will review the findings which will be used to inform policy and service decisions for the future.”
