Abstract:
Competent nursing practice is at the heart of quality patient care. Nursing education has a central role to play in delivering quality End-of-Life Palliative Care (EOLPC) in Canada, a role that includes designing curricula based on carefully thought through patient-centered competencies. Thus developed, nursing curricula have potential to prepare nurses to deliver quality care for a high need, growing population. To this end, in 2004, CASN struck a EOLPC Task Force whose mandate is to develop nursing competencies for the care of this population. Hospice, or EOLPC is guided by the following principles. Care is: patient and family focused; high quality; safe and effective; accessible; adequately resourced; collaborative; knowledge-based; advocacy-based; and, evidence-based (Ferris et al, 2002), principles addressed in the competencies developed by the Task Force. In this presentation, we will outline the competencies and their development including reference to a consensus-oriented invitational symposium co-hosted by CASN and Health Canada's Secretariat on Palliative Care. The presentation will provide an overview of the competencies and a discussion of lessons learned during interchanges with the participants at the symposium. We invite participants attending this session to share their views on: what to consider when developing our dissemination plan; and, potential implementation issues.
