Brief description Given the crucial role caregivers play in a cancer patient’s recovery and illness management, caregivers are often not adequately prepared to manage the physical and emotional demands of care giving. This intervention involves developing and implementing a targeted program for caregivers, comprising screening for distress and provision of information and support, designed to reduce carer burden, improve psychosocial outcomes for caregivers and decrease unmet needs of people with cancer.
