The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of family education on knowledge, coping, and burden of the family members of schizophrenic patients in Korea. Although research associated with burden of family caregivers with schizophrenia patients has been conducted, a lack of attention has been paid to developing and testing nursing intervention on systematic family education. A quasi-experimental research with nonequivalent control group pre-posttest design was employed. A total of 40 subjects from community agencies and advertising participated in the study. Twenty family caregivers of schizophrenic patients were recruited for the experimental group, and 20 subjects participated for the control group. Three instruments such as Knowledge Scale(KS), Coping Scale(CS), and Burden Scale(BS) were used. For KS, internal consistency estimate for the tool was .81. Coping Scale had a reliability coefficient of alpha=.72. For Burden, Cronbach's alpha was .85. The intervention consisted of family education using the written guidelines, and self-help support. An education guideline developed by the investigator delineated in detail the cause, symptoms, relapse, and medication of schizophrenia, communication techniques with patients, stress and coping, and caregiver's role and attitude, A total of 8 sessions were conducted by the investigator for one and half hours once a week for 8 weeks. Caregiver's knowledge on disease, coping behavior, and family burden were measured using KS, CS, and BS at the baseline and post-intervention in both groups. Data were analyzed by using Wilcoxon Signed Rank test and Mann-Whitney U test to determine the effects between and within groups. For caregiver's knowledge, coping, and burden, there was a significant difference between experimental and control group(p<.05). In the family education group, there was a significant difference between pre and post-intervention(p<.05). Issues related to the effects of family education on the caregiver's knowledge, coping, and burden of Korean family members, will be described.
