Towards tailored support of family carers in the palliative phase.

Duration: February 2017 - December 2019

Family caregivers are often heavily burdened in the patient's final life phase. They must have opportunities to be supported by people from their own social network, from professional home care and / or from organized volunteers.
The main objective of this project is to contribute to timely tailored support for family caregivers of patients in the final life phase

There are several phases:
1. Analysis of existing data from VUmc LASA cohort study;
2. Q-methodological research into profiles of family caregivers
3. Development and evaluation of a blended learning program for home care professionals and volunteers.
4. Public awareness campaign.
