Abstract

The study aimed to describe the relationship between social support, spirituality, and stress related to the burden of family caregivers of cancer patients in hospitals. A cross-sectional design was used, involving 106 family caregivers of cancer patients. The respondents were recruited from hospitals in Jakarta with the following inclusion criteria: aged 17 years or older, a patient's family member, and active participation in providing care. Among the 106 family caregivers, 52.8% felt a high caregiving burden, 74.5% perceived moderate social support, 67.9% felt a low spirituality, and 60.4% felt moderate stress. There was a significant relationship between social support (p-value 0.03), spirituality (p-value 0.00), and stress (p-value 0.02) from the family burden. Social support, spirituality, and stress have a significant relationship with family burden, which is spirituality has the most significant correlation.
