Overview

Nurses frequently care for patients at the end of life. One of the challenges is managing end-of-life (EOL) symptoms such as dyspnea and pain. For patients nearing death, relieving distressing symptoms is perhaps the most valuable contribution you can make. The goal of this course is to provide nurses with the information they need to better manage end-of-life symptoms. Nurses will learn to establish criteria for end-of-life care, learn ways to manage symptoms of those nearing death, and learn how to support patients and their loved ones in this transition.

Key Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify indications for palliative care.
  2. Discuss management of end-of-life symptoms such as pain, delirium, dyspnea and nutritional problems.
  3. Describe how to educate and support end-of-life patients and families.
