We are now into the phase of recruiting research participants for the 1-1 interviews and the online questionnaire . This is a very exciting process as we get speak to a wide range of communities and organisations in Melbourne, which have dedicated works and services for palliative care and supports. This is truly amazing!
Even though this is our first week of systematically calling out for the research participation, already, we have received tremendous responses and supports from different sources. Several interviews have already been conducted by Helen, one of our researchers in the project! This clearly shows the significant level of community interests in recognising and respecting the diverse cultural values and expectations of memorialisation and rites.
We are grateful to those who have already participated or expressed interests in participating this research and hoping to be able to speak to many more of us in the coming weeks!!
