The Right to Comfort
Abstract:
The Right to Comfort
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Malkenson, Gail, BSN, CHPN
P.I. Institution Name:Hospice of the Comforter
The contribution of excellent pain management at end of life is imperative for our patients and families to be able to attain a good death experience. Understanding different kinds of pain, different methods for pain assessment and management, as well as the contributions of cultural influences for both the patient and practitioner is crucial. In today's health care environment it is difficult to keep current regarding new trends and advancements. Our abilities to communicate, educate and assess our cultural diverse populations are paramount so that we can deliver the best care possible. Pain initiatives are now part of our regulatory boards. As professional nurses we are obligated both morally and professionally to remain current in this area. New practices, choices and modalities for pain management will be explored as well as the legal historical and cultural prospective of where we have come from.
