The processes and strategies in negotiating elder care between husbands and wives vary from family to family, depending on such factors as place of employment, quality of the marital relationships, their respective status and power within the marriage, and relationships with the parents or parents-in-law. In the era of migrant labour, when in some families the husbands migrate for work while their wives stay in the village to do childcare, housework and tend the land, it is common for these men to ask their wives to perform certain elderly care responsibilities in their absence.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
