About the Course:
This course, based upon the booklet entitled “Caring for the Caregiver: Support for Cancer Caregivers”, is intended for caregivers of people who are being treated for cancer. It provides practical and supportive information to help the caregiver cope during this stressful time. It is a condensed version of the larger booklet, “When Someone You Love Is Being Treated for Cancer”, and is meant to address the needs of caregivers with lower reading levels, as well as caregivers under considerable duress who prefer to read information in short amounts.
