There is a new article up on the stress levels and management for caregivers helping cancer patients.



Murray and colleagues conducted 42 interviews with lung cancer patients and 46 interviews with their family caregivers. The interviews took place every three months for up to a year or until the patient died.


He tells WebMD that the caregivers reported feeling overwhelmed and depressed more often during these key times, as if they were riding an emotional roller coaster.
