This 37-item questionnaire was developed to measure the perceived needs of family members after the brain injury, stroke, brain tumor, and other neurological disorders. Revised based on recent research, the questionnaire provides information regarding the extent to which needs are perceived as met.
The FNQ-R is useful as a clinical tool and as a research tool. Recent research has shown that the measure is sensitive to the effects of family interventions. Factor analysis revealed six scales:
1) Health Information
2) Instrumental Support
3) Community Support Network
4) Emotional Support
5) Professional Support
6) Involvement with Care
The Introductory Kit includes:
- a manual for administration and interpretation
- reprints of studies using the FNQ-R
- 10 questionnaires.
