Abstract

AIM: The brain regulates various functions which control and coordinate the body. As brain surgeries influence the structures that regulate body functions, they can cause serious complications in patients, such as disability or death. This study aimed to determine the caregiver burden of family members providing support for the care of patients who had undergone brain surgery.
