Hello. My name is Ruth Choi. I work at Hospice West Auckland as a Social Worker in a Specialist Palliative Care team working with patients and their families, and deliver palliative care education in Poi & Learning and Development team of Hospice also. I am also at the University of Auckland in the Department of Education and Social Work as a Masters of Social work student, under the supervision of Dr. Jay Marlowe and would love to invite you to the possible research project in Palliative Care Social Work.
Project description and invitation
The aim of this project is to explore and advance understanding of the palliative care social work practice frameworks and assessments used in hospice and hospital settings including the community service and its implications from a practitioner’s point of view. It is my hope that this research will improve our understandings of palliative care practices in New Zealand.
If you wish to participate in this research project, you will be asked to participate in a face to face or skype interview with myself as a researcher. It is anticipated that the interview will be relatively casual and free-flowing; you may feel comfortable asking the researcher questions and expressing your opinions without judgement or disadvantage.
Specifically, I am looking for?
Social Workers who are working in the field of Palliative Care working with patients and their families in either hospice or hospital setting (including both inpatient setting or community setting)
If you are interested or know someone who might be interested please contact me, Ruth Choi, (email@example.com) for further information.
