Are you a carer? Here’s some new local research
Friday 28 March 2008
If you’re a carer for someone with ME/CFS, you might be interested in a new report.
The Department of Health and Ageing has just published The Health and Wellbeing of Adult Family Carers in South Australia: An Epidemiological Analysis 1994-2004.
The report is available online at www.health.sa.gov.au/PROS/. It can also be downloaded here:
Carers SA is also holding a forum on it on 3 April.
Health and Wellbeing of Adult Family Carers in South Australia:
Discussion of new research
Carers SA invites you to join us to hear more about the findings of this important research.
The Report, “The Health and Wellbeing of Adult Family Carers in South Australia: an epidemiological analysis 1994-2004”, discusses the findings of research into statistics from south Australian surveys, in particular the Health Omnibus Survey. The researchers observed that Carers were statistically significantly more likely to report chronic conditions than non-carers.
The research, released by the Department of Health Population Research and Outcome Studies Unit was a partnership between Carers SA, Anne Stacey, Independent researcher, and the Population Research and Outcome Studies Unit.
This forum provides an opportunity for service providers, health professionals and policy makers to hear an outline of the research findings and to discuss their implications for service delivery.
