Open Now: Family Carers Health and Wellbeing Survey 2018
This study aims to explore the experiences of Family Carers who provide regular unpaid personal help for a friend or a family member with a long-term illness, health problem or disability.
A team of researchers from the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland and the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems at UCD are conducting the research in collaboration with Family Carers Ireland.
This research is being conducted to gain a better understanding of your experiences of looking after someone with a mental and/or physical disability or other condition. This will allow us to form a clear picture of the issues and concerns affecting Family Carers. It will also assist us in understanding the supports that Family Carers require in your caring role. It is intended that the results of this study will inform government policy and help us to work on your behalf to improve the services and supports that are available to you.
The deadline to complete this online survey is Monday the 7th of January. The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
