Résumé

Objective: The purposes of this study were to develop a Chinese version of the Fear of Cancer Recurrence Inventory-caregiver (FCRI-c Chinese) and assess the psychometrics of this test in the family caregivers (FCs) of Taiwanese patients with head and neck cancer.

Methods: An instrument testing study was conducted at a major medical center in Taiwan. Head and neck cancer patients and their major FCs were recruited as dyads from the radiation outpatient department. The FCRI-c Chinese was tested for internal consistency reliability, test-retest reliability, and construct validity (including theoretically supported correlation, discriminant validity, and factor structure).

Results: We recruited 300 patient-caregiver dyads. The test had good internal consistency (Cronbach α = .94) and a 2-week test-retest reliability of .88. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated an acceptable fit of the model to the data. The construct validity was also satisfactory, as indicated by the significant positive correlations of the test with depression and anxiety in FCs, and the significant negative correlation of the test with patients' quality of life. A significantly higher test score was present in FCs caring for patients with metastasis and patients who completed treatment a long time ago.

Conclusions: The FCRI-c Chinese is a valid instrument for examination of the fear of cancer recurrence in the FCs of patients with head and neck cancer. Clinicians can use this multidimensional instrument to assess important clinical care issues and improve the quality of care provided by FCs.
