Abstract

Informal caregivers are those people who carry out the task of caring for sick, disabled or elderly people who cannot fend for themselves in carrying out activities of daily living. The objective was to describe the education of the informal caregiver of the cancer patient in the dying phase based on a bibliographical study. The study was a qualitative investigation since it was documented with articles published in indexed journals in the last five years; highlighting the most evident investigations on the education of the informal caregiver of cancer patients in the dying phase or similar. There is now more recognition of the central role that family carers play and the burdens they bear, but there remain knowledge gaps on how best to support them. The data presumes efforts that have carried out interventions that, despite the fact that they have not been applied in people in the dying phase, could be useful based on the positive of these experiences.
