The patient prognosis and maintenance is dependent on the characteristics of the caregiver and the patient. Care giving is an important factor that determines psychosocial wellbeing of the primary caregivers. Psychosocial wellbeing comprises of their physical, psychological, spiritual and social dimension. The objective of this study was to evaluate the validity and reliability of the researchers’ prepared tool to assess the psychosocial wellbeing of the primary care givers of patients on hemodialysis.
