The purpose of this study was to compare family stresses, strengths, and outcomes after motor vehicle crashes (MVC), gun shot wounds (GSW), and cardiac surgery (CABG). A multivariate descriptive design based on the adaptation phase of the Resiliency Model of Family Stress was used. A convenience sample of family members (N=127) participated within the first two days of admission to the critical care unit. Family stresses were measured by the Family Inventory of Life Events and APACHE III. Family strengths were measured by the Family Hardiness Index and Family Crisis Oriented Personal Evaluation Scale. Family adaptation outcomes were measured by the Family Member Well-being Index and Family Adaptation Scale. Family members ranged in age from 18-80 years (X=42 years). Patients ranges in age from 19-78 years (X=44 years). After controlling for family member age, income, and education, multivariate analysis of variance indicated that family members of patients with trauma and surgery reported no significant differences in family strengths of hardiness and family outcomes of adaptation and well-being. However, family members of GSW patients reported significantly more stress (F=4.0, p<.01) and less use of coping strategies (F=4.33, p<.01). Interventions that address family stress and develop or mobilize coping are needed for selected families.
