New Healthy Parent Carers Paper published

Here's our latest paper to be published researching the Healthy Parent Carers programme: What aspects of health and wellbeing are most important to parent carers of children with disabilities? Health Expectations Vol 27, Issue 3,  June 2024


Parent carers of children with special educational needs or disabilities are at risk of poorer health and wellbeing outcomes because of the distinct and challenging circumstances they face. Evaluations of interventions promoting the health of parent carers should focus on measuring the aspects of health and wellbeing which are most relevant to this group. As part of a programme of research on parent carer-focused interventions, this study aimed to understand which aspects of health and wellbeing are perceived by parent carers as most meaningful and important.
