Reason for study

There are many families in Australia where there are 2 or more family members who have a chronic or life-limiting illness. Individuals within these families often struggle to manage the multiple issues of trying to cope with their illness as well as that of a loved family member.

This research seeks to explore the experiences of these individuals, and to fully understand how specific resources and information could better support their situations.
