Study investigating an educational program for nurses to educate family caregivers

Posted Aug 17 2012 2:44pm

Apropos of my post on needing more family-centered work , I came across this study out of Taiwan just published in Nurse Education Today:  A suicide education programme for nurses to educate the family caregivers of suicidal individuals: A longitudinal study . It is good to see this kind of work being done, and refreshing to see people trying to test their work with controlled designs. I'm not sure I agree with how all of the concepts are laid out (and I really don't like the heavy-handed first line of the abstract: "Family members lack the ability to care for suicidal relatives"), but this is a helpful example of the kind of attention to families that is needed.
