19 April 2013

Abstract

Hospice social care workers are a valuable referral source for participants in end-of-life research. This qualitative dissertation seeks to clarify social care workers’ views of end of life research including their opinions on the ethicality and value of end-of-life research, risks and benefits of end-of-life research, and preferences for the referral process. Twenty-eight social care workers rated their agreement with several statements and provided open-ended responses on their opinion of end-of-life research. Overall themes are discussed and recommendations for researchers of these populations are presented.
