'Guiding support for family carers'

Conference 2019

Following on from successful conferences in 2015 and 2017, Care Alliance Ireland, in partnership with UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Systems, and with funding from the Health Research Board, Care Alliance Ireland hosted their third biennial conference titled 'Towards a Refreshed National Carers Strategy - From Research to Policy' on November 14th 2019. This conference concentrated on research which has the potential to positively inform and impact the development of progressive family carer policy in Ireland.

Featuring eight oral presentations in a diverse conference programme, we believe guests left the conference with a deeper understanding of family carer issues in Ireland and how we can further push for a continued development of progressive family carers policy in Ireland. 

Care Alliance Ireland was also pleased to live-stream the conference on our website and on the National Carers Facebook page, for family carers who may have been unable to participate in the event due to their caring responsibilities. Each of the presentations is available in video/audio below together with their slides, where used. 

We at Care Alliance Ireland would like to sincerely thank all the speakers for their excellent presentations. We thank all the participants for attending the conference and we would especially like to thank the family carers who attended on the day.
