dc.description.abstractAim: This study used a descriptive exploratory qualitative approach to explore the needs of Chinese-Australian family carers who cared for an older family member with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. Method: Participants were recruited through two Chinese speaking general medcal practitioners and a leader in a Buddhist temple. There were four particpants. Results: A thematic analysis revealed four major themes and several sub-themes. The major themes were labeled Challenges/Burdens, Social Isolation, Disease Management, and Cultural Factors. Conclusion: The Chinese family carers' experienced difficulties in meeting their needs and the needs of the person they were caring for because of language and cultural differences. Cultural factors govern primary care perceptions, behaviours and beliefs about health. Health professionals need to be culturally competent to assist with meeting the needs of family carers and to improve outcomes for the care recipient.en_US
