Advances in Nursing Science: February 17, 2021 - Volume - Issue - doi: 10.1097/ANS.0000000000000360 Buy PAP Metrics Abstract Admission of patients to an intensive care unit is often a stressful event for family members. In the context of patient- and family-centered care, family satisfaction is recognized as a quality indicator of intensive care unit care. However, family satisfaction has not been consistently used or conceptualized in the literature. A modified version of Walker and Avant's method for concept analysis was utilized to examine the concept of family satisfaction in the adult intensive care unit. Antecedents, attributes, consequences, and empirical referents of family satisfaction are presented and implications for practice, research, and policy. Copyright © 2021 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
