This is a paper produced as part of the PROP2 (Practitioner Research: Outcomes and Partnership) programme, a partnership between the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh and Iriss that was about health and social care in Scotland.
This paper was written by Alan Gilmour from Glasgow City Community Health Partnership who participated in the PROP2 programme.
This research aimed to gain an understanding of how training and information support contributes to positive outcomes for carers. It provided a range of information to answer specific questions such as:
• Do carers feel that their needs are identified appropriately at different stages of their journey?
• Does training contribute to the carer’s outcomes?
• What are the barriers to carers engaging in training?
