Studying Communications & Interactions in Home Hospice

Effective communication can make a large impact on a person’s health. As part of University of Utah’s College of Nursing, the Hospice Today Project is a research study that examines how members of an entire hospice care team communicate with hospice families.

Our research project is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is made up of two related studies:

  1. A study that includes all family caregivers of patients with advanced cancer who are enrolled in home hospice services
  2. A study that includes current or recent LGBT family caregivers for hospice cancer patients

We hope this project will lead to practical recommendations for better communication with hospice families.
