Abstract:
The caregiver’s perspective about care in comatose patients is different among different caregivers, and thus the question is how it is perceived by caregivers. Among the health staff and family members, perspective of caring is obviously different. Thus, the current study was carried out to develop a valid and reliable instrument to assess of caregiver’s perspective in comatose patient care. For gathering the data used from the questionnaire consisted of items of Van Manen’s hermeneutic phenomenology, then these items combined and validated by content, face and construct validity and by split half and Cronbach α coefficient for reliability. The results showed that the four factors were labeled living with client, efforts for survival, professional conscience and responsibility and respect of human dignity. The perspective of caring of comatose patient questionnaire had 32 items and 4 dimension and showed validity and reliability, but it need to test more and more to multiplication of it’s' validity and reliability.
