Résumé : The interdependence of family members is increased during cancer disease and treatment. During this specific experience, family is not only a provider of patient care. Increasing attention has been drown in psycho-oncology to the family members, who are deeply and painfully affected by severe illness in one of their members. They must be viewed as second-order patients in their own right. A recent development addresses the family itself as a dynamic organism and studies the ways in wich the psychosocial phases of cancer alters family and factors associated with familial adjustment.
