Nurses must ‘reflect’ new end of life care standards


7 JULY, 2016 6:53 PM It is difficult to condense such a broad and important topic into the space of a comment in a limited time and it was addressed to another reader. When my end comes I would like to be looked after by caring staff like my my former colleagues in a hospital such as I worked in with this excellent and compassionate model and philosophy of care and where a staff of autonomous and highly qualified and experienced professionals all worked together with the patient to find the optimal solutions to offer them the very best quality of care. Obviously this also relied upon excellent communications at every level which also required a certain degree of time and verbosity to make sure everything was very clear and well understood and agreed upon by all involved and and with the chance to discuss ideas or any objections raised which is always a good way of eliminating misunderstandings and avoiding potential conflict. Other languages do not have such an extensive vocabulary as English so communications are often more repetitive for emphasis and to try and ensure this clarity.
