Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Rugg, Maria, RN, MN, ACNP

Title:Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
Co-Authors:Sherri Adams, RN, MSN, CPNP
The need to do everything to prolong the life of a child is a powerful force often measured by emotion versus thoughtful intervention. This is relevant when interventions focused on cure are no longer reasonable and could be harmful. The health care team has an obligation to act in the child?s best interest as conflicts may arise. (Kenny et al, 1996). While decision making involving children should be family centered; some conflicts may arise in determining whose suffering is the focus of concern. This workshop will work to use problem based learning through a specific case study to aid workshop participants highlight the key issues in assessment, management and evaluation of intractable symptoms other than pain in the pediatric patient. Further we will help the participants develop an ethical framework to aid them in their everyday practice with these types of cases. The framework will lend itself to an understanding of the impact that an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner role can make within a this specific population as part of the health care team in caring for these highly complex children and families.
