  1. Family issues in home-based care.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
