Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) men’s experiences of perinatal death in Australia
Men from culturally diverse backgrounds may have unique lived experiences of perinatal death. These men have the right to culturally competent care and effective support. This study aims to explore culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) men's experiences following perinatal death, and to identify specific support needs and barriers to support that CALD men face following perinatal death. This research may help to inform support organisations and healthcare professionals about how to best provide support to CALD men following perinatal death.
This study aims to explore this topic from the perspective of CALD men, leaders in their communities, and healthcare service providers who provide support and care following perinatal death.
Participation in this project is completely voluntary. If you agree to participate, you can withdraw from the study at any time.
Participants will receive a $50 shopping voucher as a thank you for your time.
You are eligible to participate in this research if:
• You are a CALD man with experience of perinatal loss in Australia ( perinatal death is defined as 20 week’s gestation to 28 days after a live birth)
• Your experience of perinatal loss occurred in Australia in the last 10 years
• Your experience of perinatal loss did not occur within the last 6 months (to minimise distress)
• You are over 18 years of age
• You are a leader within a CALD community
• You are a healthcare professional or service provider with experience of working with a CALD man with experience of perinatal loss
If this study applies to you, please contact Thom Pearson [email protected] or call Dr. Clemence Due on 08 8313 6096 to arrange an interview.
In the interview, we will ask you questions about grief following perinatal loss, for yourself or for men in your community / healthcare practice. The interview will last approximately 60 minutes.
So, what do you need to participate? You must be older than 18 years old and have been born before the 37th week of gestation, anywhere in the world.
