Research on Family Caregiving Support in the United States: A Strategic Plan

Research on Family Caregiving Support in the United States: A Strategic Research Plan is the product of an iterative, multi-layered process involving multiple stakeholders including family caregivers, persons with disabilities, health and social welfare professionals, policymakers, and researchers. Divided into four parts, this document outlines the next steps in researching family support by reviewing the current state of the field and identifying future directions.  

As a roadmap for future research on family support in the US, this document outlines opportunities for progress in each of four areas (exploration and discovery in family caregiving experiences; family support interventions; family support policy, programs, and services; and research methods in family support). Research on Family Caregiving Support in the United States: A Strategic Research Plan encourages funders and researchers to move forward in family support research by addressing topics and populations previously neglected, focusing on interventions and programs/policy, and supporting the use of novel methods.
