Study shows hospice caregivers need routine care interventions

The study was funded by the National Institute for Nursing Research.

The ACT framework has been proposed as a way to understand caregiver strain and develop customized caregiver interventions to positively affect the caregiving experience and improve outcomes. The goal of the study was to describe the variances among stressors, targeting specific concerns for caregivers.
