In Australia, home-based care for the chronically ill is increasing.
Technological advances and increased economic constraints are often cited as the reasons for the increase in home-based treatments.
Exploring the development of home-based care, in particular home-based dialysis, using a case-study approach provided an opportunity to identify the issues of families involved in home care.
Issues that emerged included :
(i) the development of the home-based clinic ;
(ii) the role of women ;
(iii) social isolation ;
(iv) and the lack of effective support from general practitioners and health services.
