    Abstract [en]

    Cancer was the second most common cause of death in Sweden in 2011. As the number of beds in hospitals decreases, numerous severely ill patients receive care at home. This results in family members performing important parts of the caring process. The aim of this study was to describe the caregivers' support needs from healthcare professionals when caring for an adult relative with cancer. A literature review was performed, in which results from empirical studies were reviewed and summarized. The result shows that caregivers need information about the disease and education regarding nursing skills. They also have social needs, such as to participate in decision making concerning treatment alternatives, to be kindly met by healthcare professionals, and to have opportunities for respite. The number of caregivers who suffer from anxiety and depression might indicate the presence of unsatisfied needs, which healthcare professionals could identify early in the care process. By putting focus on the caregivers' needs, healthcare professionals can help them achieve an increased feeling of competence in performing the caring role and possibly promote their sense of health and well-being.
