Informal carers of home palliative carepatients have high unmet needs. However, interventions for carers are few. This research-based short-term group intervention addresses the information and support needs of carers. Multi professional informal teaching is combined with peer support. The intervention was designed by integrating the findings from a qualitative study and the evidence on needs and interventions, in order to address the key issues of feasibility, acceptability, and accessibility. Qualitative data from attendees showed that identifying with other carers and validating feelings, asking questions of professionals, and providing each other with support and encouragement were valuable outcomes-from the group.
