Faced with an ageing population, carers are real allies and partners who are essential to the smooth running of the care of elderly patients. The objective of this study was to analyse their needs in oncogeriatrics, in order to verify the relevance of developing a serious game to support them. Although the need for better support for carers in oncogeriatrics was recognized, they especially value the need for human exchanges.
