South Island VOICES survey results released

Results from the first South Island survey of bereaved people have been released by the South Island Alliance Palliative Care Workstream (PCW).

Over 500 people from around the South Island gave their views on the quality of care provided by health services during the last three months of their partner, relative or friend’s life, for the South Island VOICES (Views of Informal Carers Evaluation of Services) survey.

The results give the PCW a snapshot of their experiences and perceptions, which will help a wide range of health services to review and plan care for people facing end-of-life illness.

The PCW would like to thank those who participated in the survey, as well as the University of Canterbury, and Kate Reid, Senior Lecturer in Palliative Care, for undertaking this important research.
