Problem: In the United States, 80-85% of deaths occur in those 65 and
older. Studies found that nurses were uncomfortable discussing end-of-life
care issues with Asian American clients because lacking in knowledge of
Asian Americans' attitude toward end-of-life decision-making. There are
few published studies on end-of-life issues in Asian Americans. Purpose:
1) examine the relationships between acculturation, health, and death
attitude and levels of end-of-life care planning; 2) explore barriers of
completing advance directives in Taiwanese American older adults with
special attention to culture-based meaning and needs. Theoretical
Framework: Leininger's Transcultural Care Theory. Subjects: The target
population includes people age 65 and older of Taiwanese origin who live
in the Midwest. This proposed study will include 120 Taiwanese Americans.
The sampling frame will be constructed from directories of Taiwanese
organizations and Taiwanese churches. Method: A cross-sectional design is
proposed. The data will be gathered through face-to-face interviews.
Instruments: A Short Acculturation Scale, self-reported chronic conditions
and medication use, self-assessed health, Geriatric Depression Scale,
Sense of Coherence Questionnaire, and Death Attitude Profile-Revised.
Level of advance care planning will be measured by: never think about it,
talked about it to families and/or health care providers, completed
advance directives, completed advance directives and let families and
health care providers know. Semi-structured, open-ended questions will be
used to explore barriers and concerns of completing advance directives.
All the instruments will be translated into Taiwanese by professional
translators to ensure conceptual and metric equivalence. Anticipated
method of analysis: Quantitative data analysis will involve the
examination of underlying assumptions for using parametric statistics.
Simple and multiple regression analyses will be performed to examine
relationships between variables. Qualitative data gathering through
open-ended questions will be analyzed for themes.
