Abstract:
Clinical/Evidence Based Practice: Evidenced based spiritual care is a major component of Oncology Nursing practice. Assisting patients and their families as death approaches depends on the ability of the staff to understand both the physical and psychological needs of the patient and their family. Each culture requires significantly different approaches. Ethnicity contributes the greatest difference in our beliefs about death, more than any other demographic characteristic. Culturally sensitive care is mandated by the Joint Commission, Oncology Nursing Society, Hospice and Palliative Nursing Association. The End of Life Nursing Education Consortium and the Dying Patients Bill of Rights guarantee patients spiritually sensitive care regardless of the beliefs of the caregiver. The purpose of this project is to develop evidenced-based clinical practice cards for the five major religions; Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist, to be used by nurses at all levels of practice. While there are multiple resources available to research the practices for death and dying and post mortem care, there is no one source that provides nurses easy access to clinical, hands on, practical information for bedside care. Clinical practice cards have been developed based on the most current research for each of the five major religions. The cards have been validated by religious leaders within the immediate community and updated based on their expert input. The cards will be used by the bedside staff of the Acute Palliative Care Unit, re-evaluated and updated based on input from the nursing staff. The cards will be assessed by survey methodology to judge information ease of use, and to assess if the cards provided a practical and valuable guideline to staff that are unfamiliar with practice and rituals in cultures and religions. The cards will assist the nurse by providing a quick insight to the needs of the patient and their family. This will empower the nursing staff to give better care and enable them to ask better questions. The end result will be to significantly increase the evidenced-based spiritual care given to patients at the institution during both end-of-life and post mortem care.
