Research Description: 

The Center for Research on End-of-Life Care at the Weill Cornell Medicine is currently recruiting participants for a study titled “Bereavement Rumination Process in Bereaved Adults”. The aim of the study is to explore bereaved adults’ repetitive thinking of the deceased person and the bereavement experience after loss their loved ones.

If you are 18 or above, a United States resident, and lost a spouse or a first-degree family member (i.e., parent, child, sibling), and have thought about the deceased person or the loss of your loved ones in the past month, we sincerely invite you to participate in this study. The survey would take you about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

The survey may provide an opportunity for those who are willing and ready to share their thoughts and feelings related to the loss. Your sharing will contribute to enrich our understanding of the repetitive thinking following bereavement among bereaved population, and to identify the cognitive processes that mediate recovery from the loss, and will eventually help develop new intervention protocol for bereaved people. Your participation is very much appreciated.

This study has been reviewed by the Weill Cornell Medical College IRB Office, and it received ethics clearance through the WCMC IRB Office (Protocol #: 1710018630). If you have any concerns or questions regarding this study, please contact:
