Survey on Public Attitude to Death and Dying in Wales

Survey on Public Attitude to Death and Dying in Wales


A team of researchers: Dr Anthony Byrne, Prof Annmarie Nelson and Dr Ishrat Islam, from the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre at Cardiff University want to find out about people's attitude towards death and dying in Wales. They want to know what people think and how they feel about death and dying. They want to understand what people know and if they have any preferences about issues related to death and dying. They would also like to know if you and your loved ones have made any plans around this.

The researchers hope that the findings will help services to better understand the public perception around death and dying and develop informed service delivery. The Researchers also hope that this will encourage people to talk more about death and dying. They will publish the results of this study in the form of general reports and academic papers. Your name will not be used anywhere.
