Experience of bereavement and grief during the Covid-19 pandemic (PATIENT CLIENT COUNCIL)
Death, dying and bereavement have, unfortunately, been brought to the forefront of the public mind since the onset of COVID-19. However, we lack a full understanding of how the pandemic and measures like social distancing have impacted on the way people are dying and the support their loved ones need.
Marie Curie, in partnership with the Patient and Client Council, want to better understand the grief experiences and support needs of people who have been bereaved either due to COVID-19 or another cause of death during the pandemic. We are inviting people to share their experiences with us through direct engagement and by completing a UK-wide survey from Cardiff University, the Economic and Social Research Council, Marie Curie and the University of Bristol.

The PCC hope that the project will help to identify ways to improve end of life care during the pandemic and the support that is available for people who are bereaved – shaping the future design and delivery of services in Northern Ireland.
