Project Respect: LGBTQ+ Experiences with Healthcare Providers for Serious Illness

Are you an LGBTQ+ person with a serious illness?

Or, are you a spouse, partner, widow, or caregiver of an LGBTQ+ person with a serious illness?

If so, we would like to learn about your experiences when receiving health care. We are conducting a study to hear how LGBTQ+ persons and their spouses/partners are treated while receiving care for a serious illness. Our goal is to plan training for doctors, nurses, social workers, and clergy that will reduce discrimination and increase respect for our community.

We are inviting you to fill out our survey at yu.edu/ProjectRespect. It will take about 15 minutes to complete. You can complete the survey without giving your name or any other information that could identify you.

It is best to complete the survey using a computer to see the questions and to type your answers. A phone is not recommended.

Thank you.
