The COVID-19 pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges for all care providers. We want to acknowledge the great work that leaders in all settings have undertaken during coronavirus, to support residents, families and staff. We know from direct work with several providers and through our online services just how demanding this period has been.
During the pandemic Marie Curie has seen an increase in enquiries from families and patients seeking support and advice on death, dying and bereavement, especially gaining access to care and support during the pandemic. As a direct result, there has been an increased ask for direct care and information support from the wider care sector to manage this demand. However, at Marie Curie we believe that there will be longer-term support needs for staff, residents, and families related to general care, emotional support, clinical oversight, regulatory compliance, learning and knowledge exchange and strategic policy and partnership development.
This survey is designed to help us to understand how we can use our palliative and end of life care experience to co-design support for you and your services, both within the context of COVID-19 and beyond. The deadline for the survey is 25 October 2020
Over the coming weeks, we plan to engage with key networks and representative bodies through virtual workshops to explore the co-design of short, medium and long-term assistance that’s both relevant and appropriate. The results of this survey will be used to help us inform these workshops and identify what support we could be developing for care providers preparing for the future.
This short survey will only take 10 minutes of your time; your responses will be anonymous and your answers will not be presented in a way in which you could be identified. Please do not include any information in this survey that could identify you or anyone else (e.g. residents).
