Vast research has underscored negative psychological and physical effects of providing care for someone with a chronic illness. Unfortunately, caregivers of persons with a primary malignant brain tumor have received very little attention in the research literature. The purpose of this article is to review what is known regarding descriptive and interventional work in neuro-oncology caregiving and to suggest avenues for future research. A total of 36 descriptive and six intervention studies were identified for this review.
