ALMEIDA, Suellen Santos Lima de et al. Senses of care: the perspective of caregivers of people with cancer. Psico-USF [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.3, pp.469-478. ISSN 1413-8271.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-82712013000300013.

There is currently a tendency for the care of patients with cancer to be performed within the family. In that sense, this study aimed to understand how caregivers of men in Oncology treatment mean the experience of care. Narrative interviews were conducted with 10 caregivers of men's with cancer in a public hospital specializing in Oncology in the city of Belo Horizonte-MG-Brasil. The analysis conducted through the Heideggerian phenomenological pointed to the meaning that caregivers attribute to cancer, the meaning attributed to the experience of being a caregiver and the meaning of care. To understand the meanings that the caregivers attribute to their activities allow interventions directed to the needs of these subjects, favoring their quality of life.

Palavras-chave : Caregivers; Sense; Existential phenomenology.
