Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT): Practice version

The Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT) is an evidence-based tool to enable identification of the support needs of carers who are supporting a family member or friend with a long term and/or life limiting illness. It is a short tool comprising 14 broad support domains that are based carers’ own accounts of the areas where they commonly require support, both to help them support the patient and to look after their own health and wellbeing. The CSNAT has been jointly developed, validated and trialled by the University of Cambridge and the University of Manchester. See https://csnat.org for further information.

The CSNAT can be used as a practice intervention; that is, as an intervention by health care or social care practitioners to identify carers’ unmet needs and provide supportive input. As a practice intervention the CSNAT is integrated into a person-centred process of assessment and support that is practitioner-facilitated, but carer led; the CSNAT Approach.

Because the CSNAT Approach represents a change in practice, practitioners need to undertake CSNAT training before a licence for the Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT): Practice version can be obtained. Further information on  CSNAT training can be found here or alternatively please contact Dr. Gail Ewing (ge200@cam.ac.uk) or Prof. Gunn Grande (Gunn.Grande@manchester.ac.uk).

The CSNAT can also be used as a Research Tool. This is when CSNAT is used purely to gather research data, but not to directly support carers.  To request a licence for the Carer Support Needs Assessment Tool (CSNAT): Research version please click here.
