Title: Measures of financial burden for families dealing with serious illness: A systematic review and analysis.
The purpose of the study was to review the available literature to identify, and describe the properties of, measurement tools or scales used to assess financial burden, including financial stress and strain, for families dealing with serious illness. The authors concluded that to measure financial burden, we identified a need to develop and test multi-item measures, measures appropriate for patient populations and greater attention to the temporal aspects of self-report assessments
