How treatment burden affects the carer: the experiences of three individuals, a mother, a daughter and a husband
The burden of treatment extends beyond the patient and can have a dramatic impact on the person in a caring role. This article shows how this burden of treatment can affect not only the person with a condition, but also those who care for them.
Read the experiences of three people who have taken on very different care roles. The first is Lucy Pritchard whose son, Elijah, was born with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Pam Carter then discusses her experience of caring for her mother, Eileen, who has bronchiectasis and finally the experience of EU-IPFF's CEO, Liam Galvin.
