Abstract

Children with leukemia desperately need serious attention and commitment which is a hard struggle for family members. Powerlessness experienced by the family will affect their ability to provide care for their children. Many factors can affect the empowerment of families in providing care to their families. This study aims to analyze the factors that affect family empowerment in treating children with leukemia. The research design used is explanation survey. The sample were 140 families with children suffering from leukemia in the pediatric ward at Soetomo Hospital Surabaya. The results showed that family factors and nurse factors related to family empowerment in caring for children with leukemia equal to T: 3.801 and T: 6.590 and there was no influence of patient factor T: 0.707. Family and nurse factors need to be taken into account in family centered empowerment, but the patient factor is one of the factors that has little influence on family empowerment in caring for children. More research is needed on family centered empowerment models in the ability to care for children with leukemia, such as the nurses giving nursing interventions, especially the pediatric nurse in empowering parents at the time of caring for a child with leukemia.
