Abstract:
A change in sleep quality is a significant complaint frequently reported by cancer patients and their caregivers and affects their quality of life. Purpose: Sleep research in the Korean cancer patient and caregiver populations, specifically prevalence and symptom presentation, is limited. To describe and compare sleep quality and quality of life (QOL) in Korean gastric cancer patients and their family caregivers’. Theoretical/Scientific Framework: Symptom Management Model, focusing on symptom experience and outcome. Methods: Descriptive, cross-sectional study design. A paired sample of outpatient gastric cancer patients receiving chemotherapy with their family caregivers (N=103) participated. Demographic profile, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, Center for Epidemiological Studies of Depression, Lee Fatigue Scale, and Quality of Life-Cancer were used. Data Analysis: A descriptive, paired t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient, and multiple regressions were used. Findings and Implications: Both patients and caregivers had poor sleep quality, specifically difficulty falling asleep and maintaining sleep. Patients had poorer sleep than caregivers based on a significant difference in sleep quality (t(102)=3.4, p<0.05). Patients and caregivers reported moderate fatigue, depressive symptoms, and average QOL; no significant differences. Patients’ QOL had significant correlation with the caregivers’ QOL (r=0.28, p<0.01). Symptoms (i.e., sleep, depression, and fatigue) and demographic variables (i.e., gender, financial status, perception of health status) had equal variance in determining the patient’s QOL. In light of a different cultural background, demographic variables still accounted for 30% of variance in the QOL of caregivers. Korean cancer patients and caregivers experienced poor sleep quality and related symptoms consistent with previous sleep studies in the U.S.
