Objective & Design: This study was to investigate relationships among the sense of burden, social support, and quality of life for the family caregiver of hemodialysis patients through a descriptive survey design. Population, Sample, & Setting: Participants were one hundred family caregivers whose patients received hemodialysis for more than one month at three branch hospitals in C University, Seoul, Korea. Years & Concepts: Data were collected from March to April 2003. Three questionnaires were used to measure three study variables: Sense of Burden and Social Support (two independent variables), and Quality of Life (dependent variable). Method: Data were analyzed using t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient, ANOVA, and regression analysis. Findings: 1. There was a significantly positive correlation between the social support the family caregiver received and the quality of life the family caregiver perceived. Also, there was a significantly negative correlation between a sense of burden and quality of life. 2. Regarding predicting factors, the family caregivers' quality of life were significantly and positively affected by their level of education and social support (p<0.05) and were negatively affected by the level of burden (p<0.05). Conclusion & Implication: There are close relations among burden, social support, and quality of life for the family caregiver of hemodialysis patients. Thus, the establishment of nursing intervention program based on the findings is needed to promote quality of life for the family caregiver of hemodialysis patients.
