Purpose: To examine the complex relationship between the following family constructs: family stressors, family resources, family needs, and family functioning in the family who has a member who received a brain injury. Theoretical Framework: Resiliency Model of Family Stress, Adjustment and Adaptation (McCubbins & McCubbins, 1991. Sample: A convenience sample of seven family caregivers of adults (> 20 years of age) post traumatic brain injury during the community integration phase. Method: Non-probability convenience study. Family caregivers completed four instruments. The instruments were the Family Information Sheet (family stressors, family resources), the Family Needs Questionnaire (FNQ - family needs), the Family Assessment Device (FAD - family functioning), and the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales (FACES II - family resources, family functioning.) Research questions: 1. Test the feasibility of using four different instruments to measure the following constructs: Family Information Sheet (family stressors, family resources), the Family Needs Questionnaire (FNQ - family needs), the Family Assessment Device (FAD - family functioning), and the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales (FACES II - family resources, family functioning.) in family caregivers of persons with a traumatic brain injury.2.What are preliminary findings and relationships? Results: The four surveys contained a total of 153 questions taking about 30 minutes to complete. Family needs remain high during the long term community integration phase (Mean Family Need score was 3) with professional support and health information being the highest. The areas of communication and roles were the areas most affected in overall family functioning and were higher than the normed sample. There was a wide range of range of family types with highly cohesive and flexible to rigid. Conclusions: Preliminary study directs healthcare professionals to assess family needs and family functioning in a more systematic manner in family caregivers of persons post traumatic brain injury.
