Cicely Saunders Institute Open Seminar Series: Uncovering the contributions and costs of family caregiving towards the end of life
By Professor Gunn Grande, Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Care, University of Manchester
Family carers provide vital support for patients with cancer towards the end-of-life, but we have limited data on the scale of this contribution and its impact on carers at a popu-lation level. This seminar reports findings from a census sur-vey of bereaved carers in England. Factors explored include the time and tasks contributed by carers, as well as their po-tential economic value. The impact of caring in terms of ex-penditure, changes to work, and mental and physical health outcomes, are described.
This event is FREE TO ATTEND – no need to register!
CPD (1 credit) pending Royal College of Physicians
The series aim is to optimise opportunities for local, national and international networking within palliative care and rehabilitation. We facilitate seminars to assist in improving practice, education and policy, and the integration of research and clinical endeavours
