ELNEC Critical Care Module 1: Palliative Care in Critical Care Nursing

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

This module will provide an overview of palliative care in the critical care setting and the important and unique role you play in providing quality care. Whether you work in intensive care, coronary care, the emergency department, a burn unit, or some other critical care unit, you will witness major deficiencies in current systems of care for patients and their families, particularly at the end of life. Social and economic forces influence care provided at this important time and in these highly technical arenas. It is vital that you collaborate with members of the interdisciplinary team to honor patient’s goals of care and to provide palliative care across the continuum for all seriously ill patients and their families. This work is very important. Remember that your care does not mean only “doing for” but also “being with.” That is the beauty of this sacred work, as it combines compassionate caring, concise communication, up-to-date/evidence-based knowledge and practice, and impeccable skills. No other healthcare professional spends more time assessing and managing care than the nurse.
