The purpose of this study was to examine the experience of caregiver drug administration in patients and their families. The method used is qualitative phenomenology. There are 20 participants, including patients and their families. Participant withdrawal was determined by a targeted sampling method. Data analysis was used in Colaizzi’s 7-step approach.
