This file is a template in ppt format for collecting composite case examples. It was made to help understand the clients and support doulas provide in a confidential manner within a workshop. Areas on the template include: key client characteristics, likes and dislikes, kinds of support needed, living situation, support for those around the client, referral pathway and time with the service, clients' expectation of the service, cultural specific requirements, advance care planning, examples of how doulas made a differnece, opportunities and challenges for the doula. 

It can be adapted with attribution for other research, education and service settings. It has key relevance in end of life care provision. 

The template was developed as part of a HEIF KTV funded project done in conjunction with End of Life Doula UK (EoLDUK).
