Hello! My name is Tom Mundy and I am a Trainee Clinical Psychologist from the University of East Anglia. I am looking to explore parents’ experiences, both at EACH and in everyday life, through a research study. This study would like to speak to parents who have come to EACH, and spoken about their story of caring for a child with a life limiting condition or life threatening condition at groups or events run by the hospice. We are also interested in parents more general experiences telling this story to other people outside EACH.
Taking part in the study is optional. If you are able to take part, I can conduct a single, one off research interview with you. The interview will last up to 90 minutes, and ask about your experiences of telling your story of caring for a child with a life limiting condition or life threatening condition, at groups or events run by EACH, as well as more generally in conversation with other people outside EACH. You will also be asked to complete a short questionnaire (asking your name, age and other basic personal information) as part of the study.
I am hoping that the results from this study will be used to inform the way that children’s hospice services are run, and potentially improve the support that is offered to parents at EACH and other hospice services in the future.
