Objective: the aim of the present study is to assess the effect of social support group, in improving the quality of life and alleviating the burden of primary family caregivers of patients with brain injuries. Design: One group pre-post design. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The population of this research is Korean family caregivers of patients with brain injury. The sample consisted of the 34 primary family caregivers of patients with brain injuries by convenient sampling method in one University Hospital in Pohang, South Korea. Data were collected from July 1st to September 25th, 1998. Concept or Variables Studied Together or Intervention and Outcome Variable(s): Intervention variable is the social support group of family caregivers of patients with brain injuries. And outcome variables are burden and quality of life of them. Methods: Four social support groups (consisting of 6-11 Members) meeting were involved over a 5-week period. During this period, each support group met the primary family caregivers once a week for an hour. A burden scale and quality of life scale were used to obtain the pre-test and post-test data. The data analysis (paired t-test, t-test, F test, Duncan test and Pearson correlation) was done using SPSS. Findings: The findings of the present study are as follows: 1. Hypothesis 1; Caregivers burden will be decreased by participation of social support group compared to before was supported (t=2.71, P<.011). 2. Hypotheses 2; Caregivers quality of life will be increased participation of social support group compared to before was rejected (t=1.98, P<.056). 3. Statistically significant negative correlation was found in the relationship between the burden and quality of life (r=.5911, P<.000). Conclusion: It can be said that the participation of social support group in alleviating the burden of primary family caregivers of patients with brain injuries is an effective nursing intervention. Implication: I recommend to use social support group as a nursing intervention for primary family caregivers of patients with brain injuries. And we need to know the differences between the effect of nurse-initiated social support group and their own and their own social support group by further research.
