How and why we do research

Why do we conduct research at Caring for the Caregiver?

We have affiliated faculty conducting a number of studies with family caregivers. These opportunities may include 1) identifying and understanding what kinds of challenges family caregivers may experience, 2) developing programs and interventions, and 3) evaluating programs and interventions to ensure they are beneficial.

What kind of research do we do at Caring for the Caregiver?

We use a range of methods, including surveys, interviews, and occasionally “biobehavioral research,” where we collect physical health information.
