The Last Outing

This was a two year UK-wide study (2012 - 2014), funded by Marie Curie Research Programme. It explored end of life experiences and care needs of older (60 and over) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people. The project report was completed March 2015.

The pages here were ‘live’ for the duration of the project; further updates will be made available by clicking on the link: www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/srcc/projects/last-outing.aspx

This will include updates on papers published and our work to utilise the findings to influence end of life care policy and practice.

The study incorporated a survey of (237) LGBT people and 60 in-depth interviews, a sub-sample of the survey respondents. It was led by Dr Kathryn Almack (k.almack@nottingham.ac.uk) at the Sue Ryder Care Centre for the Study of Supportive, Palliative and End of Life Care, University of Nottingham.
