Research on the impact of caring for patients with an acoustic neuroma is scarce. Findings from 12 interviews with primary carers of this patient population highlight six key themes: life disruption, support, well-being, the carer role, lessons learned and the impact of COVID-19. Carers need more practical information and emotional support, starting from the diagnosis stage through to recovery. Recommendations include routine carer assessments, early signposting to auxiliary services and information materials about recovery. This study contributes to the UK literature gap of this under-studied population and demonstrates the importance of carer assessments, as set out in the Carers Act 2014.
