FoCcuS4HEART Research Project

Researchers from the University of Newcastle are conducting the FoCCuS4HEART project, which seeks to work with informal female carers of Stroke survivors to develop strategies and tools to support carers to self-manage their emotional and physical health. If you’re a woman who provides care or has provided care to someone who has had a Stroke, you can help by sharing your experiences in our survey.
