Abstract: 

Introduction: Family caregivers of cancer patients provide extraordinary uncompensated care that is physically, emotionally, socially, and financially demanding and results in the neglect of their own needs. Satisfaction of caregiving need of family caregiver is important for quality care the patient. In this direction present study was aimed at identifying the level of satisfaction with perceived need-fulfillment related to cancer caregiving among family caregivers of cancer patients. Methods: Descriptive cross-sectional survey was conducted to assess the level of need-fulfillment among 225 conveniently selected family caregivers of cancer patient receiving chemotherapy and radiation therapy in a tertiary care hospital of Punjab by using socio demographic data sheet and Family inventory of Needs (FIN) scale. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA and Pearson’s correlation. Results: The family caregivers were predominantly male (61.8%), married (80.9%) and belonged to Sikh religion (75.6%). Two third (64%) family caregivers had their perceived important needs only partially met. Mean (SD) of need-fulfillment was 39.22 (9.2) and it had significant association with gender of family caregivers (p= 0.028), distance of subject’s residence from hospital (p= 0.032) and provision of unpaid help in caregiving activities (p= 0.019*). Conclusion: Majority of family caregivers had their important needs only partially met. Health care system needs to focus on the family caregivers and their perceived needs. Study recommends that oncological nurses should regularly assess the need-fulfillment of caregivers of cancer patient so that appropriate interventional strategies can be planned.
