This course explores the nurses’ involvement in family centered end-of-life care. Principles of hospice and palliative care are used and discussed along with the myriad of needs facing individuals and their families at this time of life. The burden and distress of those facing life’s end and the ability of nurses to offer support for the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of clients and their families are presented.
