Carer Support Nurse Initiative Publishes Carer Support Nurse Pilot Report
12 Dec 2023
The Carer Support Nurse initiative has published a report on the NIHR website called the Carer Support Nurse Pilot Report.
The Carer Support Nurse initiative received facilitation by UEA Health and Social Care Partners to secure funding.
Morag Farquhar, Professor of Palliative Care Research at the UEA and her team worked with carers, health and social professionals, voluntary organisations, and national leaders in carer support to develop a new Carer Support Nurse role.
The role was piloted for 12 months, and a study was conducted to explore the role’s values and impact by analysing data on what the nurse did and the views of the carers, patients, health and social care professionals, voluntary organisations, as well as the nurse themselves.
