Family members and significant others find themselves in the role of caregiver for a multitude of reasons. The demand for caregivers continues to rise worldwide. In addition to the well known Zarit Burden Interview, many other caregiver burden tools exist which health care providers could potentially use to measure caregiver burden. Caregiver burden tools have been used in many different patient populations and settings. Although multiple studies have examined caregiver burden in reference to specific disease entities, no systematic review has examined the psychometric and feasibility properties of caregiver burden screening tools. This systematic review is being conducted to determine the reliability and validity of caregiver burden screening tools and the feasibility of their use by clinicians. Reliability is being assessed by examining stability, internal consistency and equivalence of instruments. Statistical conclusion validity, internal validity, construct validity and external validity of instruments is also being reviewed. Feasibility regarding ease of use, length and appropriate language translation is being examined. The quantitative component of the review is considering any randomized controlled trials undertaken in both in-patient and out-patient settings. In the absence of randomized control trials, other research study designs such as non-randomized or quasi-randomized studies and descriptive studies are being considered for inclusion in a narrative summary. A comprehensive search strategy is being conducted with identified keywords. Multiple international databases are being searched. Papers selected for retrieval are being assessed by two independent reviewers for methodological validity prior to being included in the review. Standardized tools are being used for the critical appraisal and data extraction steps. Quantitative results will, where possible, be pooled in statistical meta-analysis. Where statistical pooling is not possible, the findings will be presented in narrative form and will discuss variables related to the reliability, validity and feasibility of caregiver burden instruments. Completion of this systematic review will provide the clinician with the best available evidence regarding screening for caregiver burden.
