Family Support Researchers Seeking Suggestions for Research Ideas

March 11, 2015

Family support researchers are calling on family caregivers and the people with disabilities for whom they provide care to suggest aspects of family caregiving that they should further research.

The Family Support Research & Training Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago is teaming up with Easter Seals on the project, which is entitled “Family Support: Tell Us What We Need to Know.”

People who are interested in contributing to the project can log into an online forum called IdeaScale (English version, Spanish version).

They can also contribute by filling out a form (pdf) or by calling (844) 781-4158 to submit their research idea verbally.

The deadline for the project is March 30.
