I found this article to be informative. My organization works with a relatively young and healthy population, but this article made me think about the lack of experience in palliative care many of our nurses may have due to the population we work with. It is important that our nursing staff is provided with training and educational opportunities to address potential gaps in knowledge to improve patient care.

Certainly the experience necessary for palliative and EOL care makes for challenges to the less experienced nurses. Those nurses finding themselves so tasked would benefit from specialized training for increased comfort in the EOL setting. This knowledge should be shared with the expert nurses providing guidance to the less experienced nurses.

As a relatively new med surge nurse with less than three years experience at the bedside this article opened up an interest to learn more about palliative care. We have a palliative group at our facility and I find myself engaging in in-depth conversations with them in regards to patient care. This article I found to be very informative and I was able to think about the aspects of pallatib=ve care that I myself struggle with and help to set goals for me to increase voth my knowledge and comfort level while a the bedside.

I enjoy reading the actual magazine in print , reviewing the article online, and the evaluation questions triggered the area of including student nurses more when I precept.

Very informative and I agree that having experience of 5 years in Med/surg makes approaching this subject easier. Not uncommon to have patients 90 years to even over 100 years in the hospital setting. They and their families need understanding of Palliative and Hospice care
