Activity Summary

Although it is perceived as essential, documentation of caring behaviors executed by nurses is rarely done. To facilitate what is important to patients and their family members, we need to understand what behaviors are perceived as caring or not caring.

Objectives

  • Identify three themes regarding nurse caring behaviors that emerged from this research study
  • Describe behaviors of the nurses that patients and families perceived as non-caring
  • Explain the importance of research in seeking information about the critical care experience from a patient and family perspective
