The Family Caregiver Cancer Education Program consisted of three group sessions in two-hour blocks as a psychoeducational program for caregivers led by nurse–social worker teams. A panel of 20 multidisciplinary experts in oncology designed the program content.
Topic areas in the program included
Caregivers of patients with cancer from 18 healthcare agencies in a large northeastern city (results from one site of a larger multisite study)
A nonrandomized, well-designed trial design was used, with pretest, post-test, baseline, and four-month postintervention scores completed.
