     The purposes of this quasi-experimental research were to compare: 1) self- efficacy perception of caregiver in traumatic brain injury patients before and after received family-centered discharge planning; and 2) self- efficacy perception of caregivers of traumatic brain injury patients after received discharge planning between experimental group and control group. Subjects were 58 caregivers of hospitalize traumatic brain injury patients purposively assigned to the experimental or control groups (29 in each group). The experimental group received familycentered discharge planning. The control group received routine-discharge planning. Research instruments included manual of family-centered discharge planning and a caregivers’ self-efficacy questionnaire. All instruments were tested for content validity using a panel of three experts.
The guide of family-centered discharge planning has revealed CVI of 0.88. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of caregivers’ self-efficacy questionnaire was 0.90. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, and t-test).
Majors results are as follows:
1. After receiving the family-centered discharge planning, self-efficacy perception of caregivers of traumatic brain injury patients was statistically significantly higher than before receiving the family-centered discharge planning (p<.05).
2. Self-efficacy perception of caregivers of traumatic brain injury patients who received the family-centered discharge planning was statistically significantly higher than that of the
caregivers who received routine-discharge planning (p<.05).
