Research area

The aim of the dissertation project is to investigate aspects of quality and equality in care during the last three months of life for people with advanced illness, from the perspective of bereaved family members. A retrospective survey design was applied, using the VOICES (SF) (Views of Informal Carers- Evaluation of Services) questionnaire. The sample consists of 485 bereaved family members of persons with advanced illness, who died in four hospitals in two healthcare regions in Sweden. The VOICES (SF) contains items on key aspect of palliative care in several care places.
