Life story work and advance care planning survey

Researchers from a number of Australian Universities are conducting a project about life story work and advance care planning. 

The researchers aim to see whether life story work and advance care planning helps people to get clearer about their wishes for future care, and whether it improves wellbeing. The team is conducting an online survey to better understand people's experiences and attitudes towards planning for future health care needs.

The research team is looking to recruit people who:

  • are aged 65 years or older
  • are living independently in the community (i.e. in their own home or rented accommodation or in a retirement village)
  • can complete a survey in English, Italian or Chinese

If you, your patients or clients meet the above criteria and agree to participate, we will ask them to complete an online survey that will take approximately 20 minutes. Click to access the online survey. The link contains a full participant information statement.

If you are unable to complete the survey online, you can contact the research team by emailing or by phoning (02) 9399 1095 for other options.
