The feeling of burden is central to the experience of caregivers but there are many different ways of defining and measuring burden. This webinar will draw upon models of stress to identify and clarify dimensions of burden.
Using this framework, participants will be able to determine the dimensions of burden and measures that would be best for their purposes in assessing caregiver’s outcomes in clinical or research settings.
This webinar will also consider issues in administering and interpreting burden measures.
Who should attend this webinar?
- Researchers conducting biomedical or psychosocial research with caregivers
- Nurses, psychologists, social workers and other health care providers who work with caregivers
