Abstract

Relatives indicated that a lack of information made them feel unable to offer best care and support to their relative with cancer. They also indicated that they felt isolated at times and did not feel entitled to information and support as the patient was the priority. However, rather than being left to find things out for themselves they would have liked some guidance. Supporting families is likely to enhance the support available to people living with and beyond cancer.
