RAVNAH seeks focus group participants for study on end-of-life care

RUTLAND — The Visiting Nurse Association throughout Vermont (including RAVNAH), is leading a study to examine end-of-life care in Vermont and to understand Vermonters’ current experiences. The study is being commissioned by Madison-Deane Initiative, the education arm of VNA’s End-of-Life Care services which carries a mission to transform end-of-life care through education, collaboration and inspiration.

The study is seeking Vermont residents over the age of 35 who have experienced the death of a loved one in Vermont within the past five years to participate in focus groups. Volunteers do not need to have prior experience with any VNA or home health services.  The focus groups for Central Vermont is scheduled for Friday, June 26 at 10:30 a.m. and will be held in the Rutland area.  It will last 90 minutes.

RAVNAH believes that the results of this study will inform health care providers about the care Vermonters desire for themselves and their loved ones at the end of life.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Melissa Delehanty at RAVNAH atmelissaf@ravnah.org, or call 802-770-1520.
