The CSNAT is an evidence-based tool that facilitates tailored support for family members and friends (carers) of adults with long term life-limiting conditions. It is short and simple to use for both carers and practitioners. It comprises 14 domains (broad areas of need) in which carers commonly say they require support. Carers may use this tool to indicate further support they need both to enable them to care for their family member or friend and to preserve their own health and well-being within their caregiving role.

The research underpinning this tool was informed by carers and practitioners. Dr Gail Ewing was co-lead on this project with Professor Gunn Grande from The University of Manchester.

Further details can be found on the CSNAT website, along with latest news and upcoming events.
