Abstract:
Poster Presentation: When a woman becomes pregnant, she undergoes a series of tests to evaluate fetal well-being. With the advancement of antenatal testing, potentially life-threatening diagnoses can be discovered very early in pregnancy. Some families choose to continue the pregnancy to term knowing that their newborn baby may survive for minutes, hours, days, or months. During the prenancy, these parents may find themselves alone with limited information and resources. At the time of the birth and impending death these families desire to spend every minute with their baby and have a strong hope that their baby will not suffer. In many hospitals, these infants are separated from their families and taken to the NICU, often times for futile care. In response to an unmet need in our community, a partnership between the hospital and the hospice program was formed to provide specialized perinatal hospice services to meet the complex needs of these special families. This program was the vision of a staff nurse who works with these families in both the antenatal and intrapartum settings. Her concern with their unmet needs and the long term impact on the family moved her to take on this opportunity for innovation. Through collaboration among the family, nursing, perinataology, neonatology, social services, spirtual care, case management, and hospice families are supported from the time of diagnosis through pregnancy, delivery, possible home care, and bereavement.
