Sức khỏe thể chất và tâm lý của những người chăm sóc không chính thức (tức là không được trả lương) chăm sóc bệnh nhân ung thư là một vấn đề sức khỏe cộng đồng đang gia tăng. Nhiều nghiên cứu tập trung vào những người chăm sóc ung thư không chính thức nói chung đã được tiến hành, nhưng theo hiểu biết tốt nhất của chúng tôi, người ta đã chú ý rất ít đến sức khỏe của những người chăm sóc đó khi bệnh nhân mà họ hỗ trợ không được chăm sóc. Bệnh nhân và người chăm sóc giống nhau có thể được coi là không được phục vụ nếu họ là thành viên của các nhóm chủng tộc và dân tộc, có tình trạng kinh tế xã hội thấp hơn, hoặc người nhập cư gần đây. 1 Sự đa dạng ngày càng tăng của dân số Hoa Kỳ và gánh nặng cao của các triệu chứng liên quan đến ung thư phản ánh nhu cầu nghiên cứu của người chăm sóc trong các nhóm không được giám sát. 2 , 3Biết những yếu tố nào gây ra các triệu chứng về thể chất và cảm xúc của những người chăm sóc bệnh nhân ung thư không được chăm sóc là rất quan trọng vì nhiều lý do. Trước tiên, theo hiểu biết tốt nhất của chúng tôi, một số nghiên cứu cho đến nay đã kiểm tra mức độ phổ biến và mức độ nghiêm trọng, hoặc sự can thiệp được tạo ra bởi, nhiều triệu chứng liên quan đến chăm sóc ung thư (gánh nặng triệu chứng của người chăm sóc) trong các môi trường đa chủng tộc hoặc không được giám sát. Thứ hai, các nghiên cứu theo chiều dọc là cần thiết để theo dõi những thay đổi trong cả triệu chứng của bệnh nhân và người chăm sóc để có thể xác định được mối liên hệ và các chiến lược để giải quyết các triệu chứng có thể được đưa ra. 4 - 6Thứ ba, và có lẽ là quan trọng nhất, các nghiên cứu về người chăm sóc ung thư cho thấy rằng khi các triệu chứng của chính bệnh nhân hoặc người chăm sóc không được điều trị, kết quả sức khỏe của người chăm sóc bị ảnh hưởng tiêu cực. 7 - 9

VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY CAREGIVING BURDEN AMONG RELATIVES OF CANCER PATIENTS IN VIETNAMESE NATIONAL ONCOLOGY HOSPITAL Ly Nguyen Thuy, Trang Ta Ngoc Dan Department of Nursing and Midwifery, Hanoi Medical University, Hanoi, Vietnam Correspondence Ly Nguyen Thuy Department of Nursing and Midwifery, Hanoi Medical University, Hanoi, Vietnam, No1 Ton That Tung Street, Hanoi, Vietnam Email: nguyenthuyly.hmu@gmail.com ABSTRACT Family involvement has significant influences on decision-making processes, the receiving and sharing of information, and the provision of physical and emotional support for patients. This role commonly causes a substantial burden and caregivers often experience negative psychological, behavioral, and physiological effects on their daily lives and well-being. Caring for people with cancer can have significant impacts on caregivers as well as caregivers’ outcomes, which in turn can have negative impacts on the people being cared for. However, their burden of care does not attract appropriate attention in the Vietnamese health care system. Objectives To describe the caregiving burden among family caregivers of cancer patients and to explore the factors associated with the levels of caregiving burden among relatives of patients with cancer. Methods One-hundred and seven family caregivers of oncology patients in a Vietnamese National Oncology Hospital participated in the cross-sectional study by completing available questionnaires including the Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI), Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL). Results The average ZBI score was 48.9 ± 13.7, in which 72% of participants reported high caregiving burden levels and 28% of them experienced mild and moderate levels. Higher burden was reported in older caregivers (r=0.21, p=0.03), female caregivers (t=-3.51, p<0.001), caregivers who had no other support in caring (t=-2.78, p<0.01), and caregivers spent longer hours caring at hospital (r=0.40, p<0.01), as well as at VJMP 8(2)-2015 1 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY home (r=0.46, p<0.01). Patient’s spouse reported higher burden than patient’s offspring (F=4.33, p<0.01). Regarding patients’ background factors, male patients (t=2.29, p<0.02) and patients who were breadwinners (t=3.13, p=0.02), diagnosed with cancer for more than 2 months (F=4.26, p=0.01) and undergone radiotherapy (t=2.02, p=0.05) or surgery therapy (t=2.17, p=0.03) experienced greater burden than the others. Importantly, the study found that the less independent patients were, the higher burden of care that caregivers would perceive (p<0.05). Conclusions The study results provided evidence concerning the high caregiving burden levels among relatives of cancer patients within Vietnamese cultural contexts. Caregivers’ and patients’ background factors were significantly associated with different levels of burden that caregivers perceived. This study provided an important foundation for future development of evidence-based interventions to support caregivers of cancer patients in Vietnam. Keywords Caregiving burden, cancer caregiver, Vietnam VJMP 8(2)-2015 2 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY BACKGROUND Cancer is a major public health problem in the world. This disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, accounting for 8.2 million deaths globally in 2008 [1]. In Vietnam, cancer has been considered as an emerging major health problem since the 1990s [2]. It is estimated that about 150.000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year in Vietnam and only 5% of them receive prompt treatments [3]. Cancer has been reported as an important contributor to the burden of death in Vietnam. The annual mortality due to cancer is 75.000, equal to 14% of the total deaths of the country [3]. In Vietnamese traditional culture, relatives of patients, especially family members, are immediate people who care for daily routines and personal activities of the patients. The care for cancer patients has complex requirements in different stages of the disease. Therefore, the family plays an important role to provide the high level of care needed for both physical and psychological care of cancer patients. However, various kinds of caring tasks put a heavy burden on family caregivers’ lives. This leads to the concern that the levels of burden on caregivers of cancer patients are greater than those of other diseases and thought to be similar to the caring demands for patients with dementia [4]. Evidence has shown that caring burden related to numerous factors may negatively influence caregivers in psychological, physical and social aspects of their lives [4]. To date, a considerable amount of literature has been published about caregiving burden among caregivers of cancer patients worldwide. However, much of the research up to now has been carried out to describe the nature of burden of care for professional caregivers. Little is known about the caregiving burden of family relatives of oncology patients. Moreover, care burden is and under-researched topic within the Vietnamese context and thus, questions has been raised about the level of burden as well as the associated factors. The study was conducted with two main objectives, to: 1. Describe the levels of caregiving burden among cancer patients’ relatives who provide care for oncology patients in a Vietnamese National Oncology hospital. 2. Explore the factors associated with the level of caregiving burden among relatives of cancer patients in a Vietnamese National Oncology hospital. VJMP 8(2)-2015 3 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY METHODS Study population Inclusion criteria: (a) be family members of cancer patients in the Medical Department of Oncology, Vietnamese National Oncology Hospital from September 2014 to October 2014, (b) provide assistance and offer care for patients without payments, (c) voluntarily participate in the study. Exclusion criteria: difficulties in communication. Methods Study design: a descriptive cross-sectional study applied the technique of face-toface interview by questionnaire. Samples and sampling A convenience sampling method was used to recruit participants who met the inclusion criteria. The sample size was calculated according to the formula provided by Lwanga and Lemeshow [5]: In which n: sample size; 1- α/2: confidence level with α= 0.05, Z= 1.96; P: assuming percentage of relatives with moderate or higher burden of caregiving at 0.5; d: absolute precision required; d=0.1 and n=97. An additional 10 participants (10%) were recruited for a total sample size of 107 people. Research Instruments Questionnaires included 3 sections. Part 1: to determine the background factors of caregivers and patients: demographic characteristics (20 items). Part 2: to determine the level of caregiving burden: Zarit Burden Interview- ZBI (22 items). The items are worded subjectively, focusing on the affective response of the caregiver. Each question is scored on a 5-point scale ranging from - never to nearly always present. Total scores range from 0 (low burden) to 88 (high burden). If ZBI total score of <21: “little or no burden”; 21 to 40: “mild to moderate burden”; 41 to 60: “moderate to severe burden” and a score >61: “severe burden” [6]. Part 3: to determine the level of patient’s independence: Activities of Daily Living-ADL (6 items) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL). The higher ADL and IADL score indicated the higher level of patient’s independence. These tools in Vietnamese versions were validated VJMP 8(2)-2015 4 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY and employed in the previous study conducted among a Vietnamese population [7]. Therefore, the instruments were considered appropriate to use in this study in the Vietnamese context. The internal consistency of these instruments were measured in this study with Cronbach’s Alpha for ZBI, ADL, IADL were 0.845; 0.8 and 0.803, respectively. Data analysis Firstly, frequencies and percentages were calculated for each of the variables. Then bivariate analysis (students T test for 2 groups or ANOVA, analysis of variance for more than 2 groups of independent variables, and Pearson’s correlation for continuous independent variables) was used to explore the associations between background characteristics and total score of ZBI. The level of significance for all analyses was set at less than 0.05. Ethical considerations This study had approval from the research committee of Hanoi Medical University. Before inclusion, the purposes of the research and benefits of the participants were presented in a cover letter attached to the questionnaire. Written informed consent was gained from all participants who took part in the study. Participants were informed that they could withdraw from this research without comment or penalty.

DISCUSSION Characteristics of participants Caregivers: More than half of the caregivers were male (56.1%) with an average age of 42.5 ±13.6 years-old. The main occupations of caregivers in our study were farmers and employees; therefore, their relationships and social activities were narrower than a study population with varied occupations of other research [8,9]. More than a half of caregivers (68.3%) had education at an ordinary level (high school or less). The Majority of caregivers were patients’ spouses, thus, it is easy to understand that almost all of the participants were living with the patient in the same house. The average time that caregivers spent for caring in the hospital was 124.1 (SD=63) hours/ week, larger than the result of a study in the United States with 18.9 hours/ week [8]. Similarly, the average caring time in the family was 51.8 (SD=66.5) hours/ week, higher than the result of a study in Vietnam in 2006 on the terminally ill, which was 10 hours / week [10]. Patients: The average age of patients was 52 years, with an average disease duration of 19.6 months. The patients who had been diagnosed with cancer for 2-6 months made up the highest proportion. This study was conducted in the Medical Department of Oncology, which may have resulted in a high percentage of patients VJMP 8(2)-2015 10 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY (88.8%) treated by chemotherapy. The level of caregiving burden The average caregiving burden score among caregivers in this study is considered higher compared with research on relatives of dementia patients in Brazil (31.4 ± 16.0) [11] and in Vietnam (29.30 ± 13.58) [12]. In Vietnam, the family plays an integral role in the delivery of health care, in that family members provide for basic physical needs of patients, including hygiene, nutrition and hydration. Therefore, it is reasonable as none of participants in this study reported little or no burden. Almost all of the caregivers experienced high levels of burden, including 55% for moderate to severe burden and 17% for severe burden. The associations between caregiving burden and caregiver’s characteristics Our study illustrated that female care providers had higher levels of burden and depression than male caregivers. This is supported by the findings of other studies conducted in America in 1992 [13] and in Vietnam in 2014 [7]. Women are more likely to experience major depression related to greater life pressures than men [14]. Moreover, in this study, the average age was 44.9, which is in the premenopausal period for women. Therefore, female care providers become more susceptible to the burden for caring. Unsurprisingly, this study indicated that the older caregivers were the greater burden they reported. This may be due to the fact that older care providers are more likely to be in a reduced physical state and have restricted social and financial resources, compared to younger caregivers. These disadvantages combined with the risks of chronic conditions will become a big challenge to caring. The previous study showed that caregivers with chronic diseases reported a poorer quality of life and experienced a higher burden of care than healthy caregivers [9]. Moreover, having other people supporting in caring indicated that caregivers might experience less total burden. It is generally expected that caring time will be reduced when more than one person is taking care of the patient. This may decrease the pressure on caring responsibilities and obligations for the patient's relatives. Importantly, caring tasks greatly influenced patient/spouse relationships, social roles and time to care for themselves. The findings were supported by previous studies worldwide [15,16] and in Vietnam [12], which reported that spouse caregivers expressed higher degree of role strain than others. Spouses play an important role as the primary caregivers [17] as they support the patients both emotionally and VJMP 8(2)-2015 11 VIETNAM JOURNAL OF MEDICINE AND PHARAMCY physically while filling all or most of the roles that the patients had previously played. The main burden, therefore, falling on the spouse, is perceived as heavier. Especially, the study showed that the burden of care and caring time were positively correlated with each other. If they were spending too much time caring for others, caregivers may not have had sufficient time to meet their own needs, leading to decreased health status [18]. The associations between caregiving burden and patient’s characteristics This study indicated that in the families in which the patient works as the main source of income, caregivers could report higher levels of burden. As the illness will reduce the working capacity of patients, along with increased health service expenses, which can lead to a decrease of family income and financial imbalances, this will have a profound impact on the economic status of the family, and also put tremendous pressure on caregivers. Moreover, the study showed that caregivers of patients with 2 to 6-month disease duration reported a higher burden than caregivers of patients with less than 2 months disease duration. Evidence has shown that, at the period from 2 to 6 months after diagnosis, patients experienced the side effects of treatments, such as headache, nausea and dizziness [19]. Greater severity of the patient's symptoms and behavioral disturbances result in a greater “burden” to caregivers (usually rated by the caregivers) [20]. Importantly, in this study, there was a positive correlation between patient's independence levels and caregiver's burden. This result was similar to the previous results found in the study of Lowenstein in 2000 [21]. When patients are able to take part in the self-care activities, their caring demands will be reduced. This means caring for these patients requires less time than for more dependent patients, and thus minimizes caregiving burden among patient’s relatives. CONCLUSIONS The study results indicated high levels of caregiving burden among relatives of cancer patients. Therefore, there is a need to support these caregivers to reduce their burden of care, which was significantly influenced by background factors of caregivers (gender, age, spouses) and patients (main income, disease duration, independent levels) as well as caring time and support required for individual cancer patients.
