A provincial evidence-informed approach to supporting people experiencing bereavement in British Columbia
Does your organization provide bereavement services? Have you provided these services during the COVID-19 pandemic?
You are invited to participate in a survey about how bereavement services for British Columbians have been conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how service users may have been impacted.
The BC Centre for Palliative Care is conducting a study looking at bereavement during COVID-19. It is their hope that through this study, they can help determine both how bereavement services have been affected by the pandemic, and what is best practice in supporting people experiencing bereavement during both the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The findings of this study will inform a roundtable discussion to develop priority actions and effective strategies for approaches to help make quality bereavement support services accessible to more British Columbians.

The survey should take approx. 15-30 minutes. It asks about:
- The bereavement services your organization provides
- The resources you have used to provide bereavement services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Whether these resources are unique to or have undergone any changes during the current pandemic, and your opinion of any differences.
- How client’s bereavement has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The BC Centre for Palliative Care is also partnering with the BC Bereavement Helpline in their annual update of their Provincial Grief Support Resource Directory, so the survey also includes more general questions about your bereavement services.
The survey will be open until 31st July 2021, and you can access it here
