We, a team of researchers from the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre want to find out about people’s attitude towards death and dying in Wales. We want to understand what people think and how they feel about death and dying.  We want to understand what people know and if they have any preferences about issues related to death and dying. We would also like to know if you and your loved ones have made any plans around this.

Taking part in this survey is voluntary and you may choose not to answer some or any of the survey questions. There are no right or wrong answers. 

We hope that the findings will help services to better understand the public perception around death and dying and develop informed service delivery. We also hope that this will encourage people to talk more about death and dying. We will publish the results of this study in the form of general reports and academic papers. Your name will not be used anywhere.

When using the internet, there can be a risk of compromising privacy, confidentiality and/or anonymity. We have taken the precaution of using the Bristol Online Survey Tool as it is known to be safe to use to minimise this risk.

We will use and manage all data in accordance with the General Data Protection Act 1998 currently used in the UK.

To request a Welsh language version of this survey or ask a question, please contact Ishrat Islam via email or by phone at 029 22510177.

We would like to thank you in advance for your help and time.
