Marie Curie chief nurse and executive director of quality and caring services Julie Pearce said: ‘This year will mark the fifth survey Marie Curie and the Nursing Standard have come together for, looking to uncover more experiences from nurses and healthcare professionals about caring for people in the last months, weeks and days of life.
‘The past 18 months have been challenging for nurses and the profession and this experience will continue to affect our working and professional lives. This year we are exploring end of life care plans and what role they play for healthcare professionals, their patients, families and loved ones.
‘Your views and experiences matter and we would appreciate you taking a few moments to complete the survey.’
