App questionnaire to help new carers research

A team at Strathclyde University is currently developing an app that supports carers looking after someone with advanced disease, and the people they are caring for.

The app includes a questionnaire for carers and, to make sure this gathers all the right information and carers are getting all the support they need, the team is looking for carers to give feedback .

Who can take part?

Anyone who is currently, or has been, an unpaid carer for a person with either:

  • Advanced lung cancer
  • Advanced gastro-intestinal cancer (upper, lower or pancreatic)
  • Advanced chronic respiratory disease such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis or bronchiectasis

It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete feedback of the questionnaire. For those carers who don’t have access to email, we can post a paper copy with return envelope.

To take part or get more information, please contact patricia.clark@carerscotland.org (Tel: 0141 445 3070) or Morven Miller morven.miller@strath.ac.uk.
