Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sustainable Care team have been exploring how care arrangements have been impacted by the ongoing crisis. In this limited series podcast we present discussions between our researchers and special guests, as they provide greater understanding on the impact the pandemic is having on the people and systems studied within the Sustainable Care Programme.
Sustainable Care Co-Investigator Professor Majella Kilkey (leads the research team studying Care ‘in’ and ‘out of’ place) is joined by special guests Professor Loretta Baldassar (University of Western Australia) and Professor Laura Merla (University of Louvain) to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on transnational care arrangements.
