Description

Background: Dignity Therapy (DT) is a validated psycho-therapeutic intervention designed to influence a sense of meaning and purpose for individuals and their families. DT is well received by patients and family members, with research identifying improvements in measures of wellbeing and overall quality of life. Few studies include young adults (YA) with life-limiting conditions (LLC). A focused review and consultation work suggests a need to develop and evaluate a digital DT based intervention for YA/LLC.
