Abstract:

Poster presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013, Monday, November 18, 2013

The purpose of this presentation is to explore the lived experiences of registered nurses concerning palliative care goals, preparation, and treatments of dying patients in the Long Term Acute Care setting.

Long Term Acute Care hospitals serve as the intermediary for acute and long term care facilities.  The increasing number of chronic illnesses leading to death versus recovery in these hospitals has suggested the need for quality palliative care practices.  Gaps in education among professional nurses affect the quality of life in patients receiving palliative care.  Therefore, education and preparation are crucial factors among this nursing population.      

The nursing perspective is one way to identify education needs regarding palliative care in the Long Term Acute Care environment.  Reflecting nurses’ lived experiences with the anticipation of improving palliative care practices justifies the significance of this research.   

 Hermeneutic phenomenology as interpreted by Max van Manen was utilized and data were collected through audiotaped, semistructured interviews at a private location selected by the participant. A matrix format was utilized in interpreting the essences of the lived experiences.
