Caring for the caregiver: A guide for physicians

Millions of people in this country provide unpaid care to an adult or child, and the emotional, physical and financial challenges of caregiving, can lead to caregiver burnout.

A caregiver can be any relative, partner, friend or neighbor who has a significant personal relationship with, and provides a broad range of assistance for a child or an adult with a chronic or disabling condition.

In the guide, "Caring for the Caregiver: A Guide for Physicians," the AMA  takes a look at factors that contribute to caregiver burnout and provides helpful resources for physicians, their patients and their caregivers—or patients who care for others.
