LGBTIQ+ Health Australia and the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) are inviting LGBTIQ+ people and/or health professionals to share their views on palliative care in the following survey.

LGBTIQ+ people require palliative and end-of-life care that is inclusive and culturally appropriate. This research will help to understand what good end-of-life/palliative care might look like for LGBTIQ+ communities. The research will also help in understanding the existing barriers. The findings of this study will be used to develop education for health professionals, so that they have the knowledge to provide inclusive end-of-life and palliative care.

You do not have to be accessing palliative care services to participate in this survey. All views are welcome.

You can complete this survey if you are:

  • An LGBTIQ+ person
  • A health professional who is not LGBTIQ+
  • An LGBTIQ+ health professional
  • An Australia resident
  • 18 years and older
  • Proficient enough in English to complete an online survey in English.
