Coogle, Constance L.
Educational Gerontology, v28 n1 p59-71 Jan 2002
Advisors from universities, human services agencies, and Alzheimer's Association identified the educational needs of family caregivers; results were used to prepare training materials. Family caregivers who were trained, mostly African American and rural (n=106), increased knowledge of the disease and caregiving. Economic barriers to participation and ways to improve cultural sensitivity were addressed. (Contains 33 references.) (SK)
