Current debate persists about whether or not family members should be
present during resuscitation efforts of hospital patients. Literature
suggests that nurses vary widely in attitudes toward family presence
during resuscitation and that nurses' attitudes drive decisions about
family inclusion. To date, most measures of nursesÆ preferences about
family presence consist of opinion surveys, completed primarily by nurses
working in critical care units. Reliable, valid instrumentation to measure
nurses' perceptions across diverse settings is lacking. The purpose of
this exploratory study is to test two newly developed instruments in a
sample of nurses from a variety of patient care areas. The Family Presence
Nurse Self-Efficacy Scale measures self-efficacy of nurses regarding
family presence during resuscitation. The self-efficacy scale is a 16-item
instrument. A sample item is "I could administer drugs effectively with
family members present during resuscitation efforts." The Family Presence
Nurse Perceptions Scale measures nurses' perceptions of risks and benefits
of family presence during resuscitation. The perceptions scale is a
19-item tool. A sample item is "Family members will become disruptive if
they witness a resuscitation effort." Items were derived from an extensive
literature review, from the theoretical framework of the Institute of
Family-Centered Care (Johnson, 2000), and from nurses' descriptors of
family presence experiences during resuscitation efforts. Both instruments
have five-point Likert response options. After expert content review,
pilot testing and revisions, initial testing is proceeding with 200
nurses. Internal consistency reliability, factor analysis, and item-total
correlations will be computed. The influence of demographic variables on
scale psychometrics will be evaluated. Study findings will contribute to
the development of reliable, valid measures of nurses' perceptions and
self-efficacy related to family presence during resuscitation. In
addition, findings may identify factors that influence nurses' decisions
about family-centered care at times of crisis.
