You are encouraged to participate in a survey that is part of a groundbreaking exploratory study centered on moral responsibilities of patient care in the intensive care unit. Specifically, the study explores the types of clinical situations that often become ethically difficult and physicians’ and nurses’ perspectives on moral responsibilities inherent in their professional identities. The results will provide information for developing interprofessional ethics education and fostering early, collaborative intervention guidelines.
To be eligible for this survey, you must currently be a licensed physician or registered nurse who works in critical care at an acute care facility. Nurses who belong to the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses have also been invited to participate. This study is being conducted by researchers from the UCLA Healthcare Ethics Center and UCLA School of Nursing.
If you would like to participate, the survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Clicking on the above survey link will take you to an anonymous and secure survey website with additional study information.
