Significance: Families facing cancer differ in their need for interventions that are offered within randomized clinical trials. Most studies use ôone-size-fits-allö interventions that are not targeted to perceived specific needs of patients and family members. With cost constraints, the variability in need for intervention must be considered so that the most appropriate and cost effective care is delivered. Studies need to determine if nurses' assessment of families' need for intervention (NFI) correlate with patients' and families' perceived NFI. Problem and Purpose: This study: 1) described patients', spouses', and nurses' perceived NFI, 2) examined the relationships among patients', spouses', and nurses' perceived NFI, and 3) determined if NFI was associated with risk for distress. Theoretical/Scientific Framework: A stress-coping framework guided this study. Method: A secondary analysis was used to address study aims. The sample consisted of 68 patients with prostate cancer and their spouses who participated in FOCUS, a family intervention. Patients and spouses each rated themselves on a five-point NFI Scale. Advanced Practice Intervention Nurses rated dyads on a five-point NFI Scale. Patients and spouses also completed individual Omega Screening Questionnaires to determine their risk for distress. Results and Conclusions: Patients and spouses have varying NFI. Nurses' evaluations of NFI correlated with spouses' perceived NFI (p = .033). Spouses' ratings of NFI correlated with patients' ratings of NFI (p = .003). Patients' risk for distress scores related to their own NFI ratings (p = .048) and the nurses' NFI ratings of patients (p = .002). Spouses' risk for distress scores correlated with their own NFI (p =.05), patients' NFI (p =.02), and nurses' ratings (p =.001). The advanced practice nurses' assessment of patient/spouse dyad's NFI was significantly related to both patients' and spouses' individual ratings of their risk for distress, providing validation of the nurses' evaluations.
