There are still profound inequities in experience at the end of life, and it is critical that we address these. We will hear from research that has investigated the impact of the pandemic on ethnic minority groups, revealing some stark inequities.

When investigating inequities, it is crucial to start with data – we will hear about a review of national datasets and their completeness for ethnicity information, and how data in palliative care can be improved.

This session will include the presentation of The Susie Wilkinson Award and The Joanna Mugridge Research Award.

The presentations in this session will include:

The palliative care response to ethnic minority groups with COVID-19: equal but inequitable – an observational study
Dr Sabrina Bajwah (King’s College London)

Improving ethnicity data in palliative care: harms, benefits and overcoming challenges
Dr Gemma Clarke (University of Leeds and Marie Curie Hospice Bradford)
