Nurses must ‘reflect’ new end of life care standards


JULY, 2016 7:34 PM Thanks for your kind comment. Mine is ideological maybe but based on my own experience and practice I had the privilege to be involved in for over 20 years in a 1,000-bedded state of the art university hospital In Europe which is a model of clinical excellence where staff work together in interdisciplinary teams to provide the best individualised care for each and every patient which is becoming increasingly challenging in a world of rapidly developing clinical advances, changing demographics due to shifting populations and economic uncertainties. End of life is the one certainty facing us all where there is only one chance for those accompanying the individual to endeavour to get it right for each and every individual and it is imperative to 'manage' it well.
