Abstract:
Our journey toward clinical excellence in Palliative and End of Life Care began with an interdisciplinary group that recognized a standard of nursing care for dying patients did not exist. Physician orders and nursing practice were not connected; relationships between disciplines and with patients and families were not created. Surveys indicated a continual decrease in family satisfaction during end-of-life care. Anecdotal stories supported the need to improve palliative and end of life care. Although several educational programs were in process, e.g., Residents End-of-Life Training and Care and New Nursing Graduate training, care remained disjointed. The goal for this interdisciplinary group was to connect care with the needs of dying patients and their families. Over a period of 2 years, progressive growth and development occurred in palliative and end of life care. Physicians, nurses and chaplains collaborated in developing orders and practice guidelines that reflect and included all disciplines. Education was developed and plan of cares were revised to reflect interdisciplinary cooperation. The Connections Team, a palliative care service, was an available resource. This team provided direction, guidance and support in implementing the physician order set and the nursing practice guidelines. This presentation will describe the interdisciplinary relationship that was used to develop and sustain a creative program to improve palliative and end-of-life care. Data from recent family surveys will be shared. The importance of integrating physician orders, nursing practice guidelines, chaplain practice and electronic documentation to create sacred spaces for patients and families will be illustrated.
