Blog: Time to call in the specialists?


I would just like to say that this has been identified as an issue with specialist nurses and that ARNS has tried to address the problem by developing a course in End of Life care in Respiratory Disease that was recently run with the BTS at the University Hospital of South Manchester. It uses end of life respiratory case scenarios for discussion and teaches communication models used in cancer and some developed within the Trust to support patients who have emotional concerns. The course evaluated well and requests have already been made to run the course in Belfast.
