dc.description.abstractTreetops Hospice Care, in partnership with University of Derby are commencing a research project exploring the outcomes of developing support workers and volunteers, in initiating conversations around quality of life. Treetops Hospice are a pilot site for NHS England for Personal Health Budgets (PHB’s), their work has began to explore not only if PHB’s have been awarded, but in addition to this, discovering that the “conversations” around what’s important right now to the patient / carer and what can make a difference right now toward end of life, can be just as important. Volunteers and support workers may be advantageous in having these conversations with the right support and development. This is a current ongoing research project being developed with the support of SEED Funding from University of Derby.
