Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The present work constitutes an analysis of an empirical investigation that has had the objective of reflecting on the topic of anticipated declarations of treatment, as well as they are perceived in nursing care, seeking to understand which aspects, to what extent they can influence the care of nursing and how, consequently, it could evolve. In addition, some aspects regarding the training of nurses on this subject have been explored, the nursing decision-making guidelines regarding these documents, and the professional and ethical aspects that could be modified in the future. Of 64 nurses contacted, 32 have agreed to take part in the study. To these, a subdivided questionnaire has been provided in order to investigate the main aspects of the research. From the empirical investigation emerges the favorable adherence of nurses regarding advance treatment declarations, which are seen as a document that can be of help to both the patient and the healthcare operator in fragile and delicate moments of human assistance. It also emerges from the results that in order to improve the meaning of advance declarations, it will be necessary to adequately train nurses, especially in areas of clinical and medical-legal ethics, areas in which today they seem to be unprepared. Furthermore, the importance of collaboration between the members of a team in order to carry out care planning shared by the patients, or at least better define the possible role that the nurse could precisely assume in the course of writing the anticipated declarations on the part of the patient, as a result of the evolution of the figure of the nurse also as an educator
