Abstract

The purposes of this research were to validate information needs from a family member perspective, to compare the importance of information needs between families, experts, and naïve individuals, and to determine the adequacy of previously determined information needs. Surveys were distributed to the three groups and the participants were asked to rate and rank the importance of informational questions and add additional questions not covered by the survey. Results validated specific information needs of families but indicated differences between experts and families. Clinical implications and recommendations for family education will be presented.
