Hospice caregivers needed!
We are looking for Hospice Caregivers to help teach us about their experience. The National Cancer Institute is funding a study that looks at the challenges of family caregivers and tests a program to make the experience easier. Family caregivers of hospice patients are randomly assigned to one of three groups. One group completes several surveys over the next 90 days. A second group completes the same surveys but is also asked to participate in a private Facebook group with other caregivers. The final group completes surveys, participates in the Facebook and is able to use technology to attend their hospice teams biweekly meeting discussing hospice patients. If you are a hospice family member caring for a cancer patient with one of our participating hospice agencies, we will be contacting you shortly to explain the details and learn from you.
