The Coma Science Group (GIGA Consciousness) in collaboration with the University of Hasselt (Healthcare & Ethics) has recently launched a survey titled “To what extent are clinicians informed when it comes to making an end-of-life decision?”, which targets clinicians involved in the clinical care of patients with DoC.
The Objective of the survey is to assess how informed clinicians are when suggesting/deciding on (dis)continuation of life-support treatments in patients with disorders of consciousness (DoCs). In particular, the survey investigate clinicians’ familiarity with DoC (from a diagnostic/prognostic point of view), and with current legal regulations on (dis)continuation of life_sustaining treatment.
If you or any of your colleagues are interested in participating in this study, please find the link to the online survey here, it takes approximatively 15/20 minutes.
Participation is, of course, completely voluntary and will not affect in any way your relationship with the investigators or our team.
The Coma Science Group thank you for your consideration.Leave a reply
