The Hospice Foundation of America (HFA) is a non-profit organization that educates the public and health care professionals about death, dying and grief. To provide education, they utilize national experts who contribute to books, web tutorials, programs and videos. HFA also funds research about hospice, supports hospice/grief initiatives, and financially assist hospice providers during a disaster.
As part of a current research opportunity, HFA is partnering with researchers Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD, and Sherman A. Lee, PhD, to distribute a survey instrument that examines the relationship between the hospice caregiver experience and grief.
The purpose of the study is to look at the relationship between caregivers’ grief and the experiences of the person who is now deceased, family members and the professional caregivers with hospice. The information will be shared with researchers and health professionals interested in the psychological effects of grief and hospice-related services.
This survey has Institutional Review Board approval and is for those over 18 who were caregivers to someone who died in hospice care. The study is anonymous and can be completed online.
