DIAdIC: a study for cancer patients and their caregiver that focuses on communication and finding the right information on a dyadic level (between patient and a caregiver: partner, child, friend,…). In this study patients with a cancer diagnosis are asked to participate with a caregiver and are randomized to a face-to-face approach, webmodules, or the control group.
