The purpose of this study was to examine the influences of psychological well-being, quality of relationship, and family support on family caregiver burden of cancer patients in a Taiwanese hospital. The theoretical framework for this study is based on a modification of the caregiving model proposed by Given, Collins, and Given. Problem 1. What is the relationship between psychological well-being, quality of relationship, and family support on family caregiver burden? 2. How much of family caregiver burden will be predicted by psychological well-being, quality of relationship and family support? Methodology and Design: A cross-sectional, correlation design was used. A convenience sample of 91 primary caregivers of hospitalized patients diagnosed with cancer was recruited. These family caregivers were asked to complete Caregiver Reaction Assessment and Psychological Well-Being Scale. Pearson-Product Moment Correlation and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were used to examine the questions. Results: Impact on health was significantly associated with family caregivers' psychological well-being, and quality of relationship between family caregivers and care receivers. There was a significant negative relationship between family caregivers' psychological well-being and impact on finances. Caregivers' psychological well-being and quality of relationship with patients were negatively associated with impact on caregivers' relaxation. There were significant positive relationships between lack of family support and impact on health, finances, visits to family and friends, and relaxation. Family caregivers who had less family support had a greater impact on health, finances, visits to family and friends, and relaxation. Psychological well-being, quality of relationship, and family support accounted for 59% of the variance on family caregiver burden. Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, nurses should be aware that family caregivers' physical condition, family support, and psychological well-being while providing care in the hospital and upon discharge has an impact on caregivers' health, schedule, and finances.
