Oncology Caregiver Support Framework
The framework is intended to support regional planning for caregiver support strategies by setting the foundation for oncology caregiver support in Ontario. The framework is intended as a best practice guide, which organizations can implement based on their unique circumstances, and develop strategies that best meet the needs of the populations they serve.
The framework is also intended to foster more discussion between healthcare providers and caregivers around inclusion of caregivers as essential partners of cancer care. It is our hope that healthcare providers using this framework will champion a culture shift in oncology, leading to greater caregiver support that recognizes caregivers as valued partners in the cancer continuum.
All oncology patients
Intended Guideline Users
Regional Cancer Programs, clinicians and administrators working in an oncology setting, other key stakeholders focused on caregivers
