People with long-term conditions may receive help, support or care from a relative or friend. Carers have been the subject of much research and policy development, however, there appears to have been an assumption that most carers live with or close to the person they support.
Members of SPARC (Caroline White, Jane Wray and Clare Whitfield) have recently conducted an exploratory study of the experiences of people who provide help, care and support from a distance. They suggest that ‘distance carers’ are an important group who are increasing in number and face specific and distinct challenges whilst providing significant amounts of support. They argue that this particular group should in future be considered in discussions of carers’ needs.
A report summarising their main findings is available Distance Caring -Final Report October 2018

Methods: Ten, healthy, active, moderately-trained females (Mean [SD]; age 22.6 [2.7] y; stature 165.3 [6.2] cm; body mass 61.5 [8.7] kg; VO2peak 43.9 [8.6] mL.kg-1.min-1) participated. The heat stress test (HST) (31.0°C; 50% RH) consisted of 9x5min (45-mins) of intermittent exercise based on match-play of female footballers. Completing two HSTs (HST1 and HST2) separated by one week, in the follicular and luteal menstrual phases respectively. Determined by self-reported menstrual cycle questionnaire and plasma 17β-estradiol.
Results: In the follicular (HST1) versus luteal (HST2) menstrual phases there was limited change in resting Tre by 0.05 (95% CI -0.20 to 0.27°C; P = 0.74), end-exercise Tre (0.10; -0.20 to 0.40°C; P=0.47); resting Tsk (-0.45; -1.15 to 0.20°C; P=0.15), end-exercise Tsk (-0.20; -0.95 to 0.60°C; P=0.64); resting Tb (-0.15; -0.30 to 0.05°C; P=0.14), end-exercise Tb (0.05; -0.20 to 0.30°C; P=0.56). Similarly, there was limited change in end-exercise fc (1; -6 to 7 b.min-1; P=0.84); %PV (-3.7; -10.5 to 3.0%; P=0.22) and mean power output (6; -25 to 36 W; P=0.68) in the sprint performance test.
Discussion and conclusion: This work has demonstrated limited physiological and performance differences in the follicular and luteal menstrual phases of moderately-trained females during intermittent exercise in the heat. This may be due to trained females having less bi-phasic fluctuations in steroidal hormones that may attenuate the differences in the effector responses of cutaneous vasodilation during heat stress.
