As the population ages and becomes more diverse, an ever-increasing need in the area of community health is that of culturally sensitive end-of-life care for diverse populations. Advance directives are a way to communicate the kind of care that people desire at the end-of-life. Current legislation is based on research done with middle class Caucasians. Recent research shows that ethnic minorities have been found to complete advance directives significantly less often than Caucasians. Currently, little is known about advance directives in the elderly Asian Indian immigrant population. To address this shortcoming, this research is the first step in exploring the factors that mediate and moderate the completion of advance directives in the Asian Indian culture. A mixed methodology cross-sectional design was used with a community sample of female Asian Indian immigrant elders over 50 who participated in an interview or completed a survey. A structural equation model was created from the literature consisting of individual predictors of advance directive outcomes identified in other cultural groups. Ethnographic data that was collected on 20 participants to yield a sophisticated contextualized understanding of the relationships of variables will be reported in this presentation. The results of this study provide needed information regarding the Asian Indian immigrant population and how culture affects advance directive outcomes. This has implications for planning interventions to increase advance directive completion, providing culturally sensitive nursing care, and legislation.
