Kompleksitas perawatan pasien kanker menyebabkan tingginya tingkat ketergantungan pasien kepada caregiver baik ketergantungan fisik maupun psikologis, yang berdampak terhadap timbulnya caregiver burden. Tujuan penelitian membuktikan adanya pengaruh caregiving pada pasien kanker terhadap tingkat caregiver burden. Desain yang digunakan cross sectional. Populasinya adalah caregiver pasien kanker di wilayah kerja puskesmas Kedungdoro dan Pacarkeling Surabaya yang jumlah 60 orang, yang diambil dengan teknik total sampling. Instrumen yang digunakan yaitu kuesioner caregiving dan caregiver burden scale yang telah diuji validitas dan reliabilitasnya. Uji statistik dengan regresi ordinal didapatkan p = 0.000, dengan nilai R = 0.699 yang berarti ada pengaruh caregiving terhadap terhadap tingkat caregiver burden dengan besarnya pengaruh adalah 69.9%. Semakin kompleks keluhan pasien kanker, menyebabkan semakin lamanya durasi perawatan yang diberikan caregiver kepada pasien, hal ini berdampak terhadap ketidaseimbangan waktu kerja pribadi dengan waktu luang yang dimiliki caregiver untuk berelaksasi, hal ini menjadi stresor yang memicu stres, dan dalam jangka waktu yang lama dapat menyebabkan caregiver burden.
