Try Abiding Instead of Hiding: An Approach to End-of-Life Care
As a certified geriatric, hospice, and palliative care nurse practitioner, I’m required to do quality-of-life (QOL) gatherings and palliative care rounds. These gatherings and rounds focus on palliation, palliative care education, and symptom management. I also collaborate with the hospice staff and patients and their families. In the performance of these duties, I have learned that abiding is a key palliative care concept.
