The Collaborative has this week launched a Delphi survey to establish a consensus among health care professionals on the importance of various core aspects of end of life care.
Conducted on behalf of the International Collaborative by the Palliative Care Unit, University of Liverpool, the study aims to ensure that the 10/40 Model reflects the best available evidence and expert opinion by establishing an international consensus on the core components of ‘best care for the dying’.
Round 1 of the Delphi is open until 31 January 2021. Round 2 opens in February 2021 and will be followed by a consensus meeting to agree the content of the 10/40 model, including recommendations for amendments if required.
What would we like you to do?
1. Consider taking part in round 1 of the Delphi questionnaire.
The online questionnaire can be accessed via the link below. You will be asked to read some information about the study and provide your consent to take part, after which you will be directed to the questionnaire which should take around 30 minutes to complete.
2. Help to disseminate the questionnaire as widely as possible
This study utilises ‘Snowball Sampling’, so if you know of anyone that would be interested in taking part, please do share this post with them, or even share it on social media. We'd be very grateful for your help.
