Abstract

Caring for the caregivers of patients with cancer is an increasingly important part of cancer care. In the past few years, several cancer centers have started caregiver-focused services and programs. However, the number of centers that offer such programs and what they provide is unclear. This article will review the extent to which the 61 National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers that primarily provide patient care also offer evidence-based support programs for caregivers.
