We Need Your Help!

Caregiving Essentials Research Project

Are you a caregiver providing informal care to a friend or family member? Did you recently participate in the Caregiving Essentials course? If so, we invite you to participate in a research study which would include a 45–60-minute online interview to discuss with us your experience in this course and how it may have helped you in your caregiving journey. We would love to hear from you!

We would like to hear about the challenges that you face in your caregiving journey and areas that you feel you may need more help. We are interested in understanding whether Caregiving Essentials has been valuable to you in terms of supporting your wellbeing and reducing the burdens that you might have faced in your caregiving.

Click here for a short video by Donna Thomson and Dr. Shera Hosseini regarding the research project. 

To thank you for your participation, we will provide you with a $20 coffee card. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Shera Hosseini at

This study has been reviewed by the Hamilton Integrated Research Ethics Board under Project #14066. The project will end in April 2022.
