As part of a research project being conducted by the Simon Fraser Gerontology Research Centre in collaboration with researchers from McGill and McMaster Universities, we are conducting interviews to learn about your experience in initiating/facilitating Advance Care Planning with LGBT older adult patients/their families and get your feedback on some Advance Care Planning tools.

You can choose to have the interview conducted by Zoom, telephone, or email, at date/time of your choice. We only ask for 20-30 minutes of your time.

As a thank you for participating you will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. 

To participate please contact Robert Beringer at or, call

Note: We use the word “family” in its most inclusive form to refer not only to biological relatives but also to “families of choice” – people patients are most emotionally close to and consider ‘family’ even though they may not be biologically or legally related. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Gloria Gutman from SFU at (604) 263-5221 or
