The ASCO Answers: Caregiving guide is designed to help family caregivers better understand their role on the cancer care team. While there is no one way to be a caregiver, people caring for someone with cancer can use this guide to understand how to meet the needs of their loved ones and work through some of the challenges caregiving entails.
In addition to providing practical tips for supporting someone with cancer, it includes blank workbook pages for family caregivers to keep track of important information, like appointments, medication schedules, and household chores. The guide can be purchased through the ASCO University Bookstore at www.cancer.net/estore. All patient education materials ship for free, and ASCO members receive a 20% discount. ■
