Get involved: Improving discussions about resuscitation for relatives in COVID-19

Good communication around healthcare at the end-of-life is important for relatives/carers and can help when coping with serious illness and bereavement.

The issue of communication regarding resuscitation decisions is especially important during the pandemic as usual modes of communication have been disrupted due to untimely unexpected deaths and restrictions to face-to-face visiting. Complaints about communication around resuscitation decisions are common.

This research aims to find out how discussions about resuscitation can be improved for the relatives/carers who had a discussion about resuscitation with a medical professional on behalf of a family member or relative during the COVID-19 pandemic.
