“The Last Outing: Exploring end of life experiences and care needs in the lives of older LGBT people”

“The Last Outing: Exploring end of life experiences and care needs in the lives of older LGBT people” has been funded by Marie Curie Cancer Care Research Programme, and is led by Dr Kathryn Almack at the University of Nottingham.

The project is funded under a call for research to explore ‘variations in end of life care’. While ‘end of life care’ is often understood to be about care delivered to people in the last year of life, the project encompasses later life experiences and thinking about mortality – issues that may become more relevant as people age.

The study is running for two years (Sept 2012 to Aug 2014) and is capturing people’s experiences in several ways:

  • A UK-wide survey (closing date Jan 2014)
  • In-depth interviews with a sub-sample of the survey respondents (up to 60 people)
  • Focus Groups with eligible* participants

If you are: *Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Trans aged 60 or over OR are under 60 but have an L,G,B, or T partner aged 60 or over AND you currently living in the UK:
