Abstract

The purpose of this descriptive correlative study was to explore the differences in experiences of cancer pain and pain affection between outpatients and their caregivers. Fifty-five dyads of patients and their caregivers participated in the study. The instrument used in the study was the “Brief Pain Inventory.”
The results of this study show the perception of patients of the worst pain was about moderate level. The perception of the worst pain among married people were significantly different from unmarried including those patients who were divorced or whose spouse was dead. Also, the younger the family caregivers, the more serious pain perception would be.
The family caregivers had significantly higher scores on “pain right now” and “pain relief.” The perception of pain relief between patient and family caregiver was not significantly correlated. The family caregivers had significantly higher scores on “sleep interference.” The results of this study can contribute to information on cancer pain control among outpatients.
