Providing care for patients with cancer places caregivers at risk for experiencing elevated levels of stress. Caregivers of patients with brain tumors may be at increased risk because of the multifaceted needs of this patient population.

This information provides valuable insight for researchers designing studies to address the experiences of stressed caregivers.
