Description

Care of people who are dying is an emotive topic, and there is only one chance to get it right for each individual approaching death. Failure to do so can hinder and complicate the grieving process of those left behind. Embedding core nursing values is integral to improving the quality of care given to all patients and those close to them. The Leadership Alliance for the Care of Dying People examined criticism of the Liverpool Care Pathway and formulated a new proposal, introducing five priorities for end of life care. Organisations, teams and individuals should consider how they can use these priorities to achieve high quality end of life care for all, at the time and in the way that each individual needs it.

Objectives

After completing this module you should be able to:
Outline issues publicised in the media that caused public anxiety about palliative care and health care in general.
Describe the aims of palliative care.
Explain the influence of organisational culture on nursing care.
Discuss the role of core nursing values in promoting good end of life care.
Describe the five ‘priorities for care’ and how they can be used to establish consistently good end of life care for all.
