Abstract:

Poster presented on: Thursday, July 25, 2013, Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Purpose:

'(1) to explore attitude and beliefs of neonatal nurses toward nursing care for dying neonates; (2) to estimate the influence of neonatal nurses' personal and professional characteristics on their attitudes towards end-of-life care for dying infants.

Methods:

'A cross-sectional design was used. A questionnaire was used collected data from 80 neonatal nurses. Research setting was four level III NICUs at four medical centers around the central region of Taiwan. Research participants were neonatal nurses who have had worked for at least one year in one of three level III NICUs and had been directly involved with the care of dying infants.

Results:

Research participants were of 80 neonatal nurses (response rate 100%). Research findings identified eight barriers hindering neonatal palliative care practice. These barriers were insufficient communication due to the lack of an in-service educational program; the lack of available counseling help for neonatal clinicians; inability to express personal opinions, values and beliefs towards neonatal palliative care; insufficient staffing; the lack of unit policies/guidelines for supporting palliative care; the technological imperative; parental demands and personal beliefs about death and previous experience caring for dying infants.

Conclusion: 'Further studies are needed to explore each barrier and to provide the in-service neonatal palliative care educational programs that are needed to decrease these barriers.
