Numerous barriers and issues surrounding Advance Directives (ADs) completion and usage have been identified in the literature including lack of knowledge regarding ADs; difficulties with paperwork completion; and discordance between patient, family members or proxy, and provider. Obstacles related to readability of AD documents have also been reported for older adults. The purpose of this study was to identify: 1. positive and negative factors related to completing ADs; 2. the psychometric indices of a stages of change AD instrument and; 3. interventions to promote advance directives discussions that are tailored for stages of change and older adults. The sample will include adults from one Midwestern community. Descriptive statistics will be used to analyze positive and negative factors for AD completion identified by participants. Content and construct validity and reliability indices of the Stages of Change AD instrument will be shared. Recommendations for tailoring interventions to promote ADs will be identified. These findings will be helpful to nurses who discuss ADs and those who develop and evaluate AD educational programs for older adults.
