One hundred oncology and hematology cancer patients from a major teaching hospital and their treating doctors were studied regarding their attitudes toward cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
A descriptive approach was used, incorporating semistructured interviews of patients and medical staff and established questionnaire measures, examining knowledge of and attitudes toward disease and treatment, and projected attitude toward CPR and current psycholgical functioning.
One-third of the patietns sample anticipated a time when they would not consent to cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
