April 19, 2022 – Understanding the Emotional Well-Being of Family Caregivers of Children with Medical Complexity
Family caregivers of children with medical complexity (CMC) are responsible for providing and arranging the majority of their child's care with inadequate support from health care systems. How CMC caregivers' experiences impact their emotional well-being is under-described. In this talk, we will review the existing literature, our team's current research, and plans for next steps to improve the health and well-being of this critical caregiver population.
