The Need for Palliative Care Education in the ICU
In a recent paper published in Critical Care Nurse, Alexander T. Wolf, et. al., discovered that many critical care nurses do not feel prepared to practice principles of palliative care, especially when access to a palliative care team is limited. The study calls for the prioritization of palliative care training for critical care nurses and their colleagues.
CAPC's toolkit, Integrating Palliative Care Practices in the ICU, enables critical care nurses and their colleagues with knowledge to refer patients for consults by the palliative care team, and/or deliver core palliative care services by trained ICU staff.
