 End of Life Care for Nursing Assistants training course

Terminal illness can present a myriad of needs to address in order to ensure that the person approaching end of life receives the best care and the best quality of life in their remaining days. The needs of the terminally ill range from the immediate and physical, such as the management of pain and suffering, to psychological in order to address feelings of fear, anger, sadness, or depression over knowing that death is near. Nursing professionals often work directly with individuals at the end of their life and provide significant support to both the patient and family. This overview discusses the challenges of providing end of life care to terminally ill patients as well as the best methods of care available with case studies to provide illustrations of key concepts.
