This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To assess the effects of psychosocial interventions designed to improve the quality of life, physical health and psychosocial well being of informal caregivers of people living with cancer compared with standard services.
The review will also evaluate the extent to which:
- Psychosocial interventions exert an impact on different domains (e.g. psychological health and physical functioning).
- Different modes of intervention delivery and settings influence outcomes.
- There is a relationship between the number, duration of intervention sessions and the degree of change in measured outcomes.
