Can an innovative collaboration improve the impact and dissemination of the key findings from a qualitative study that explores clinician and informal caregiver views and experiences of having end-of-life conversations?
A team at the Cicely Saunders Institute, King’s College London have undertaken a series of face-to-face interviews with junior doctors, senior doctors and informal caregivers who have participated in the Second Conversation across different medical specialities and hospital sites. Through this study, the team aim to understand, explore and compare experiences of having conversations about end of life or advanced illness and the Second Conversation from these three different perspectives.
The aim of this artistic collaboration is to produce an innovative and creative output based on the results of this research, to help communicate and disseminate the main findings and engage the key stake holders in the topic. The project team anticipate the primary audience will be doctors, as the aim of the Second Conversation is to improve their communication skills.
