Great Expectations: Perceived Social Support in Couples Experiencing Cardiac Surgery.
Rankin, Sally H.; Monahan, Patricia
Family Relations, v40 n3 p297-302 Jul 1991
Compared patient and spousal perceived support during the cardiac surgery recovery period and explored effects of social support on patient/spouse subjective mood states for 117 couples. Social support buffered the impact of caregiving burden on mood disturbance for caregiving spouses but did not significantly impact physical or mental health outcomes for patients. (ABL)
