Évaluation des besoins éducatifs des proches aidants de personnes atteintes de cancer solide

Abstract : Cancer is a complex chronic disease, for which no offer is available specifically for caregivers. We conducted a qualitative study analyzing the needs of caregivers of cancer patients treated in day hospital, regardless of the stage of the disease and treatment by semi-directive interviews, based on maintenance guides validated, associated with an active listening, in order to deepen the understanding of the themes expressed and to identify the needs. The size of the sample is defined by redundancy of the themes expressed (verbatim) with 18 caregivers and seven health professionals. 67% of caregivers express the difficulty of managing emotions alone, 57% being "multitasking", 50% managing body care, 39% sorting out the influx of information received, 10% perception of a non-recognition of their role and 5% do not ask for help for fear of inappropriate response. Healthcare professionals, for their part, feel helpless in the approach of the caregiver due to lack of, among other things, adequate training and time for reflection focused on their environment. The issues raised concern the inadequacy of the existing support offer to the needs and / or the potential points of adjustment. Offers of psychological support and home help are to be rethought by co-constructing innovative proposals on current care as well as educational proposals to transmit tailored information and resources to support the esteem of itself.
