LEADER INTERVIEW: End-of-Life and Palliative Care: barriers, myths and misconceptions
Abstract:In today's health care environment, end-of-life issues frequently recur with patients, families and those who care for them. And, as with many such issues, some health care teams address them well and others do not. Accordingly, we gathered three hospice nurses, an ICU nurse and a retired internist to discuss the myths, misconceptions and obstacles to patients receiving appropriate palliative care. Hospice care veteran Jane Robles, a member of the Creative Nursing Journal editorial board, led the roundtable discussion.
