Hospice Isle of Man Launch End of Life Experience Survey

Thu, 15 Aug 2019


Hospice Isle of Man will be launching an End of Life Experience Survey at the Civil Registry Office in Douglas later this month.

The survey aims to understand the views and opinions of those who have recently experienced the end of life care of a loved one. 

The questionnaire which is anonymous is intended for anyone who has experienced caring for a loved one at the end of their life and is registering the death in the Isle of Man. This will include the experience of carers and families who may not necessarily have received Hospice care.

Anne Mills, CEO of Hospice Isle of Man and Director of the Scholl Academic Centre said: “We anticipate that around 64% of deaths on the Isle of Man could benefit from specialist palliative and end of life care, currently Hospice cares for around 30% of all deaths which means 34% of people who are dying and their families are not currently supported by Hospice. Evidence demonstrates that the experience of dying for patients, carers and families is improved when Hospice is involved in their care.”

The findings of this survey will be used to identify areas that need to be improved in the delivery of end of life care on the Island and will help us identify groups of people who would benefit from specialist palliative and end of life care input.
