  • Improving care delivery through the development and dissemination of education and training resources, and  recommendations to improve care for LGBT people.
  • Improved supply of appropriate end-of-life care through development of training resources for integration within existing end-of-life care curricula for health care professionals.

The project involved in-depth qualitative interviews with 40 LGBT people from across the UK who were in the later stages of a life-limiting illness, their informal caregivers (partners, friends or relatives), as well as with bereaved caregivers of people who died from a progressive illness or condition.

The ACCESSCare A study commenced in May 2014, and recruitment closed in January 2016. It was the first study in what is now a stream of research focussing on the needs and experiences of LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans +) people facing serious illness, advanced illness and bereavement, and those close to them.

The ACCESSCare A Project was conducted in collaboration with the GMFA, the National Council for Palliative Care, and Hospice UK, and funded by Marie Curie.
