This study develops and examines the validity and reliability of 2 scales, respectively, for evaluating nursing care and the experience of difficulties providing nursing care for dying patients with cancer and their families. A cross-sectional anonymous questionnaire was administered to nursing staff caring for dying patients with cancer and their families in 4 general hospitals and a university hospital in Japan. The instruments assessed were the Nursing Care Scale for Dying Patients and Their Families (NCD) and the Nurse's Difficulty Scale for Dying Patients and Their Families (NDD)...

This article provides a conceptual framework for understanding the relationship between palliative care and healthy aging using a narrative case study from Thailand. The Thai context is used to clarify two concepts: healthy aging and good death. This case study describes a Thai female older adult's perspective and her drive to stay physically, cognitively, and socially active for as long as possible-strong indicators of healthy aging until the end of life. Family support is a vital part of helping older adults stay active and achieve a good death...

Despite significant progress in implementing palliative care interventions for patients with cancer, few intervention studies seek health care clinicians' input before implementation of these into the community. The purpose of this study was to explore palliative care and oncology clinicians' perspectives on the perceived facilitators and challenges in meeting the quality-of-life needs of patients with lung cancer and family caregivers in community-based settings. The Reach Effectiveness Adoption Implementation Maintenance model for implementation research was used as a framework...

Dignity therapy is a psychosocial intervention provided at the end of life to improve patient outcomes, but many persons cannot complete it because of health decline. Patients also reprioritize their life plans as death becomes imminent. As part of meeting standards to provide psychosocial palliative care simultaneously with cancer treatment, we provided a dignity therapy/life plan intervention to 18 patients with advanced pancreatic or lung cancer receiving cancer treatment. The study aim was to evaluate patient-reported outcomes of dignity therapy/life plan...

Guided imagery (GI) is a nonpharmacological intervention that is increasingly implemented in different clinical contexts. However, there have been no studies on the effect of GI on the comfort of inpatients of palliative care (PC) units. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of GI on the comfort of patients in PC. A 1-group, pretest-posttest, pre-experimental design was used to measure differences in heart rate, respiratory rate, pain, and comfort in patients (n = 26) before and after a 2-session GI program...

Research has shown that spiritual coping is essential for palliative care patients in enhancing quality of life and that attachment patterns affect the emotional well-being of the terminally ill. This is the first study evaluating how spiritual coping and attachment are associated in palliative care patients. Four different attachment patterns-secure, dismissive, preoccupied, and unresolved-were examined, as well as how they relate to three different spiritual coping strategies-search, trust, and reflection...

It is crucial that palliative care nurses feel competent to practice their profession in accordance with ethical principles, to personalize care, to remain sensitive, to ensure respect, and to communicate effectively. The aim of this study was to verify that higher levels of perceived professional competency predict better individual and organizational outcomes, such as job satisfaction and organizational citizenship behavior. An online cross-sectional survey was conducted with 107 Italian palliative care nurses...

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of the Holy Name Meditation on cancer patients' spiritual well-being, anxiety, depression, and pain. Twenty-eight patients were enrolled in the control group, and 18 patients were selected for the experimental group. Only the patients in the experimental group completed 5 weeks of the Holy Name Meditation Program. All participants were surveyed to assess spiritual well-being (Spiritual Well-Being Scale), anxiety and depression (Symptom Checklist 90-R), and pain (numeric pain rating scale)...

Stroke survivors often experience life-altering functional and cognitive changes and burdensome symptoms. Palliative care could provide additional support to improve outcomes of stroke patients and their families. The purpose of this review was to describe how palliative care is conceptualized and implemented within stroke care.An integrative review of the literature published between 1990 and 2016 using the terms "palliative care," "stroke," or "acute stroke" was conducted. Of the 363 articles identified, 44 were screened, 21 met inclusion criteria, and 2 additional articles were identified through reference list review, resulting in a final sample of 23 articles...

One barrier to continued growth of palliative care is the shortage of qualified hospice and palliative care clinicians. Advanced practice registered nurses are an important part of the interdisciplinary palliative care team, and strengthening this workforce can help alleviate the shortage of clinicians and improve access to quality palliative care. However, there is a dearth of information about this workforce. The purpose of this study was to describe the current hospice and palliative care advanced practice registered nurse workforce, their educational needs, and barriers to practice...

This mixed methods study explored the impact of the End-of-Life Nursing Education Consortium (ELNEC)-Undergraduate Curriculum on perceived preparedness of undergraduate nursing students in the care of dying patients and the relationship between personal loss experience and undergraduate nursing students' attitudes regarding the ELNEC-Undergraduate Curriculum. Of the 36 undergraduate nursing students who completed ELNEC, 24 reported a personal loss of a close family member or friend to death and 12 reported no loss...

Palliative care delivery is shifting to the home, yet data are limited on symptom assessment tools and protocols for that setting. A quality improvement project was done in a home-based palliative care program to imbed the Edmonton Symptom Assessment System into the electronic health record. The purpose of the quality improvement project was to track symptom severity and collect utilization data. Baseline data were collected on 35 patients for symptom presence and severity as well as hospital utilization and readmission...

Moral distress affects workplace environment, burnout, employee retention, and patient safety. Palliative care is frequently involved in complex care for patients that may cause moral distress among staff. The goal of this study was to measure change in moral distress among nurses after implementation of a policy that allows nurses to consult palliative care. Before the policy change, data were gathered via email using the Moral Distress Scale-Revised. The scale was redistributed 6 months after implementation of the consult policy...

At the heart of palliative care philosophy lies the requisite of expert collaboration across disciplines, specialties, and organizations to provide patient- and family-centered care. When working in a global health setting, myriad interpersonal and cross-cultural considerations must be acknowledged to promote effective communication and coordination between stakeholders. The purpose of this article is to share the experiences of those working to advance palliative care in Rwanda, East Africa, and examine their collective journeys in practice, education, and research...

The hospital-to-home transition in palliative care is a vital process that requires continuity of care through the discharge process. However, little is known about the perceptions of patients with cancer and their family caregivers during this important palliative care transition in the Colombian health care context. The purpose of this study was to explore the experiences of the patient-family caregiver dyad in palliative care during the transition process between hospital and home in a health care institution in Bogota, Colombia...

Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) should choose a treatment modality, such as hemodialysis (HD) or conservative medical management (CMM), to improve their symptoms with the goal of attaining a good quality of life (QOL), a concept highly aligned with palliative care principles. This article aims to answer if elderly patients with ESRD have improved QOL with CMM compared with HD. Conservative medical management focuses on managing symptoms, rather than invasive procedures such as HD, with more focus on holistic care...
