The International Alliance of Carer Organizations (IACO), in collaboration with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease seeking friends and family members who care for a person with heart failure to complete this brief survey on their experiences. The survey includes a series of questions about the impact of heart failure on you and the person for whom you provide care. We are particularly interested in how caring for a person with heart failure affects your employment, finances, health, and social life. We will also ask you questions regarding your experience with health care providers.

IACO defines a family carer as an unpaid individual who is involved in the care of a person with heart failure. This can be a spouse, partner, parent, another family member or close friend. We will distribute the report on our findings to key policymakers and anticipate that the recommendations will be used to introduce legislation, modify regulations and possible to provide support services to carers of persons with heart failure.

The online survey should take you approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please note that all responses will be confidential and no identifying information will be collected. You can take the survey here:
