[Research Presentation] We have been working to expand knowledge of the need for palliative care for a greater number of patients not just the terminally ill. We have been doing this through meeting with an interdisciplinary group of hospital personal interested in the topic. This group includes nurses from adult, pediatric and neonate units at our hospital, physicians on the pain service, chaplaincy services, an ICU nurse manager, a pharmacist, hospice nurses, a speech pathologist, a clinical social worker, a bioethics professor, a nursing educator, and a nursing researcher. We began with a literature review on the topic and researched palliative care services available in other hospitals in the region. The web site we designed provides resources to nurses, physicians, co-workers, patients and their families who seek more information about palliative care topics. It provides links to hospital, regional, national, and international web sites. Findings: We presented a workshop introducing the Palliative Care concept. One of the sessions focused on how to use the Palliative Care web site. Returned scores from an 11-question Likert Scale found 86% (24/28) of the participants werenÆt aware of the web site before the seminar. Answering the statement, ôI can apply information from the presentation in my practiceö 96% (28/29) of the participants agreed or strongly agreed. Asking the participants: ôWith information I learned from this presentation I will be better able to care for my patientsö 83% (24/29) strongly agreed or agreed. When asked about referring patients to the Palliative care web site 86% (25/29) of participants agreed or strongly agreed doing so would improve patient satisfaction. Implications: Designing a Palliative Care web site is a practical and efficient way to educate co-workers and community about available resources. It also can demonstrate the efficacy of implementing palliation during earlier stages of a patientsÆ hospitalization.
