Her dissertation discusses the importance of the partners’ role as a critical extension of the formal healthcare system. It will become crucial to find new ways to support dyads affected by heart failure. Her thesis is the first step in understanding dyads’ perceived caring needs, and can guide in clinical work when designing new dyadic interventions. To read her whole thesis click here.
