The Carer Knowledge Exchange Research Library contains a growing collection of research about carers and caring. Its current focus is on Australian research from the past 10 years.
This includes publications and resources developed by university researchers, community organisations, government agencies and other authors who have systematically collected information about carers with the aim of improving understanding and practice.
Publications and resources are continually being added by the Carer Knowledge Exchange team, and users can submit their own research, or suggest publications and resources that they think would be a good fit.
To be included in the Research Library, submitted publications and resources must focus on people who provide care and support to a family member or friend who lives with a disability, mental illness, alcohol or drug dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail due to age.
