Health care providers who view patients and carers as a care partnership during hospital treatment will offer better care experiences, however, this is not always the case. Carers have reported experiences where they are not included in information and communication of their loved one’s care. This study aims to explore information seeking, communication and information access requirements and priorities of older persons and carers during hospital engagements from the perspective of “we are a team”.
