SESSION TITLE: Palliative Care and End of Life

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: The concept of family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) has been controversial since its introduction. Despite evidence of its positive effects on patients’ family members, there is reluctance to universally adopt this practice. Although most studies focus on the perceptions of physicians and nurses, not much has been reported about the opinions of other CPR team members, including respiratory therapists, nursing aids and resident trainee physicians. This study aims to objectively measure the perceptions and attitudes from the entire CPR team towards FPDR, and to explore factors that influence them to perceive FPDR as beneficial or detrimental at an inner-city teaching hospital of an underserved community in New York.
