Abstract

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this study was to explore the main prerequisite for Korean Advance Directives [KAD] to ensure their better use.

METHODS:

Data were collected from two focus group interviews and individual email responses. Study participants were 5 doctors and 6 nurses. All interview data were transcribed and analyzed using qualitative content analysis.

RESULTS:

Three main themes emerged; establishing a philosophy of KAD, protocol to practice KAD, and the KAD document itself. A philosophy is needed to ensure individual needs, consensus to practice AD and identify principle agents. The core of protocol was found to be as follows; 1) process, 2) premise, 3) procedure, 4) contextual preparation, 5) timing, 6) feasibility. Component and feasibility need to be established for the document itself.

CONCLUSION:

For a positive acceptance of KAD in Korean society, a culture sensitive, reality based, and user friendly AD needs to be developed.
