The purpose of this study was to obtain nurses' initial impression of the effects of the University of Maryland Medical System's advance-directive program on patients' reactions toward and interest in advance directives. To obtain this perspective, we interviewed nurses who were responsible for implementing the program. We sought information about their attitudes toward the hospital's advance-directive program and toward their role in implementing this program.
