The term ‘double-duty carers’ (DDCs) refers to unpaid family carers who are employed in the healthcare field while also providing unpaid care outside of work (to a family member or friend). The purpose of this project is to examine the impact of COVID-19 on both DDCs’ unpaid caring work and paid healthcare work. DDCs and employers can benefit from evidence-informed guidelines on best practices, in order to reduce consequences like illness, work absences, and stress.
