Brief Abstract

We conducted a 4-part study that included weekly interviews of 150 family caregivers across Alberta for six months to learn what they did in the past week, what help they needed, and what help they got. We did literature reviews on identified needs and program logic investigations of identified essential services for home-based end-of-life care. This presentation features the findings and recommendations for provincial and federal governments.
