dc.description.abstractThere are approximately 43.5 million informal caregivers (CG) in the United States, accounting for 70-80% of community healthcare (Adelman et al, 2014; McGhan & Mccaughey, 2017). CGs frequently neglect their own health and report higher levels of stress and anxiety than those receiving care which can result in CG strain. The loved one receiving care can also suffer consequences such as unmet needs, declining mental and physical health, and premature institutionalization (Martin & Neumann, 2014; McGhan & Mccaughey, 2017).|The condition of the CG is often considered an “afterthought” and overlooked by primary care providers (PCPs) (Adelman et al, 2014; P. Elias, 2015). The goal of this quality improvement project was to empower the PCP to screen and intervene appropriately to prevent the consequences of this stressful and potentially debilitating scenario. 14 PCPs in rural Northwestern Oregon were surveyed before and after a presentation on CG strain the introduction of a screening protocol. Data showed a significant increase in provider knowledge, confidence in screening, as well as an increased feeling that they have the tools to screen and track CG strain overtime.en_US
