About the webinar:

The care of people with life-limiting illness is increasingly moving away from the acute setting into the community, with the family caregiver role growing in significance and complexity. The importance of preparing and supporting family carers has been well established, however, less is known about the impact of rurality on preparedness and how preparedness shapes the caregiving continuum inclusive of bereavement.

This webinar will present findings from a 2017 study aimed to explore how regional family palliative carers described their caregiving preparedness. There will also be opportunity for further discussion and questions around the topic.
