van Ryn M, Sanders S, Kahn K, van Houtven C, Griffin JM, Martin M, Atienza AA, Phelan S, Finstad D, Rowland J. Objective burden, resources, and other stressors among informal cancer caregivers: a hidden quality issue? Psycho-oncology. 2011 Jan 1; 20(1):44-52.

Future research should explore the potentially high yield of addressing caregiver needs in improving quality of cancer care and both survivors'' and caregivers'' outcomes.
