The purpose of this descriptive, correlational survey was to measure oncology nurses' knowledge of, and attitudes about, and experiences with ADs. The KAESAD instrument, a 6 part survey that measures, knowledge of ADs, Patient Self Determination ACT, and state laws as well as the attitudes, experiences and level of confidence related to ADS was used for the study. A random sample of 3,840 oncology nurses, 960 from each of four states (California, Illinois, New York and Texas), were mailed the KAESAD instrument. Thus far, 800 nurses have returned the survey (21 % response rate). Reliability and validity of the KAESAD instrument was satisfactorily established in the pilot study. Descriptive statistics will be calculated for demographic characteristics as well as the knowledge, attitudes, and experiences with ADs. Pearson correlation coefficients and. regression analyses will also be used for data analysis. Approximately 15 characteristic, knowledge, and attitude independent variables will be included in the regression analyses. It is anticipated that the results of this study will help the investigators develop appropriate interventions to better prepare nurses to assist patients to make end-of-life decisions related to ADs.
