This chapter is formed on one area of analysis from a research study that explored the perceptions of family caregivers within palliative care. In particular, the present chapter probes the perceptions of the family caregivers of the roles they play and of their relationship with visiting health professionals. Before discussing the findings of the study discussed in the present chapter, the literatures that influenced the structure of study are discussed and examined.
