hospital gowns

Liz Taylor 01/05/19 Dignity Champions forum

We have been contacted by a group doing some research around hospital gowns and they would like some opinions. Please see below

Please can you help with distributing the link to our Qualtrics survey on thoughts and experiences of the hospital gown? We wrote an article for The Conversation that was published in January and so far has over 26,000 reads.
See:

This work has also been shortlisted for the Images of Research event next week at Strathclyde University.
We have a short Qualtrics survey asking people that have had experience of wearing a hospital gown for their thoughts and views. We have full ethical approval.

We are really keen to gain the views of men on this issue.

We have over 450 people that have now completed our hospital gown survey - we are really keen to have over 1000 participants! This way we can begin making recommendations for change - please can you send on the Qualtrics link:

I'm going to send this to my partner who has just returned home after 8 weeks in hospital with a serious heart infection and then heart surgery. He referred to the hospital gown as 'the gown of shame'...
