Family caregivers are integral to patient care in oncology, including attending appointments in which care options are discussed or decisions are made. The involvement of caregivers in oncology care will only increase as practice recommendations and policies are encouraging their inclusion.

Further, caregivers' communication with a patient or healthcare team (HCT) remains underexplored in understanding shared decision-making.
