Study looking for health and social care professionals working across the UK to participate in a study about inclusive communication for LGBT+ people affected by serious illness.

King’s College London has launched ACCESSCare C – a major piece of research to understand and improve the inclusivity of health and social care professionals’ communication with LGBT+ people living with or affected by serious illness. Previous research shows that some LGBT people have experienced discrimination and lack of sensitivity from health and social care professionals. This study is exploring how communication relating to sexual orientation and gender identity/history can be improved.

The ACCESSCare team are looking for health and social care professionals who work with people with serious illnesses (e.g. cancer, organ failure, neurological conditions) for participation in a brief, one-off interview, at a time and place convenient to you. They are particularly interested in hearing from individuals who do not work in London.

If you are interested in participating, contact Debbie Braybrook via email or phone 0207 848 5627.
