Objective: The World Health Organization aims to support the psychosocial problems of the palliative care patient and the treatment of his physical complaints, as well as to support his family and caregivers. Since the caregivers of palliative patients are exposed to stress for a long time, various health problems and functional losses develop, and their quality of life is adversely affected. The aim is to measure the perception of stress of caregivers in Palliative Care Service (PCS) and to reveal socio-cultural and health-related characteristics.
