dc.description.abstract Patients’ requiring Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) impact many individuals, families and communities on a daily basis. A significant factor to family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) is a greater understanding of health care professionals on the benefits of FPDR to patients and families. The purpose of this descriptive quantitative study is to examine Emergency Nurses’ current practices and understanding of FPDR in the emergency department. The target population is 60 emergency nurses with at least six months emergency nursing experience representing three Midwestern facilities in Indianapolis, Indiana. Data will be collected using a questionnaire developed by the Emergency Nurses Association which will provide information regarding nurses taking families to the bedside during resuscitation efforts or would do so if the opportunity arose. Additional information obtained will include written policies and guideline existence on the practice of FPDR to meet the needs of patients, families and staff by providing consistent, safe, and caring practices for all involved. Results will provide information on the safe implementation and practices of FPDR.
