Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Development of practice placements within palliative care settings attends to current educational and community priorities. With an aging population and concurrent prevalence of chronic disease, the demand for palliative care is expected to increase considerably in the near future (Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, 2007). A shift is also occurring with a majority of graduate nurses moving from employment in tertiary care to employment and career development in the community (Villeneuve & MacDonald, 2006). Preparing nurses theoretically and experientially to provide excellence in end-of-life care and palliative nursing is essential. Integral to this process is collaboration and development of academic-community partnerships which potentially support new graduate career opportunities as well as recruitment and retention by community agencies (Plowfield, Wheeler and Raymond, 2005). To ascertain the benefits of placing undergraduate students in hospice and community palliative care settings, community partnerships have currently been established between the Thompson Rivers University School of Nursing and the Marjory Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home and Home and Community Care in Kamloops, BC. With the support of these practice partners including funding from the Interior Health Authority an interpretive descriptive research project focusing on innovative communities of learning will commence in the fall of 2008.
