Informal care, family life, Heart disease and online support for carers
Informal carers are many times made invisible within health care but they have an important role on a societal level and in relation to the person they are providing help, care and support to.
Among other things, my research group study how families with youths living at home are affected when an adult suffers from heart disease. We also study the effects of an online support programme developed for and together with carers of people with heart failure. Our primary hypothesis is that the online support programme increases informal carers preparedness to care for a person with heart failure.
