Exclusive: Palliative care threatened by staff shortages


michael stone | 12-Dec-2011 2:03 pm it would be helpful, as I requested in my previous post, to reflect upon and clarify your motives for your own benefit and for those commenting on a site which is primarily for nurses as you bring Eolc into many debates, even when it is not relevant thus breaking up several debates where nurses wish to discuss the issue in question rather than your personal ones. Furthermore, it is not even possible to carry on a reasoned debate on this site about the issue of palliative and other types of nursing care which are being seriously affected by inadequate staffing levels without your intrusion. Such debates are important exchanges between nurses, for nurses and to the advancement of nursing knowledge which may in the long run help to find solutions which impact upon working conditions and thus quality of care. This is a useful platform to thrash out issues and problems in order to present a case when and when appropriate in order to advance our profession.
