21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to report on a study undertaken to understand how nurses in Taiwan maintain patients' dignity in clinical practice. Methods:  For this qualitative descriptive study, data were collected from March to May 2009 in semi-structured, in-depth interviews with 30 nurses purposively sampled from a teaching hospital in eastern Taiwan. Audio-taped interviews were transcribed verbatim, and data in transcripts were coded and analyzed by content analysis. Results: Analysis of interview data indicated that nurses' measures to maintain dignity in patient care were captured in five themes: respect, protecting privacy, emotional support, treating all patients alike, and maintaining body image. Conclusion: The findings can help clinical nurses recognize and employ measures that maintain patients' dignity of care. Suggestions are provided for the development of an in-service education course and a protocol for maintaining patient dignity of care. Moreover, we suggest expanding the five principles of Taiwan's Ethics Code of Nursing into seven by incorporating into it emotional support and maintaining body image as indicated by this study.
