Abstract:

Most existing health-related quality of life research
concerns the impact of disease on patients. However, in several medical
specialties including dermatology, oncology, and physical and mental
disability, studies have been carried out investigating the impact of disease
on the lives of families of patients.

The aim of this paper is to review the
literature which relates to the impact of disease on family members of patients.
The OVIDSP Medline was selected as the primary database, Searches were limited
to sources published in English. 158 papers were identified for review. The
definition of “family” varied across the literature, and a broad definition was
accepted in this review. This review shows that a wide variety of aspects of
family members’ lives can be affected, including emotional, financial, family
relationships, education and work, leisure time, and social activities. Many of
these themes are linked to one another, with themes including financial impact
and social impact being linked to emotional impact. Some positive aspects were
also identified from the literature, including family relationships growing
stronger. Several instruments exist to measure the impact of illness on the
family, and most are disease or specialty- specific. The impact of disease on
families of patients is often unrecognised and underestimated. Taking into
account the quality of life of families as well as patients can offer the
clinician a unique insight into issues such as family relationships and the
effect of treatment decisions on the patient’s close social group of partner
and family. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER]
