families with a caring role in Greece, Italy, Spain and Denmark, through consultations conducted by partners to informal carers of kidney patients and patients themselves. The questions will explore how caring can have a
different impact on carers of different countries, the types of support available, the role of education
in wellbeing and coping. The report, while providing new qualitative inputs to the research on family
relationships coping strategies and educational needs in families with a caring role for kidney patients will also contribute to informing the structure of the training material and curriculum.
