Abstract:

The purpose of this best practice guideline is to provide evidence-based recommendations for Registered Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses on best nursing practices for end-of-life care during the last days and hours of life. The guideline does not replace consultation with palliative care specialists, who can support nurses to provide quality end-of-life care. The guideline is intended to be a resource to nurses who may not be experts in this practice area. It is acknowledged that individual competencies vary between nurses and across categories of nursing professionals. The inclusion of recommendations on clinical, education, organization and policy topics makes this guideline applicable to nurses in all domains and settings of practice.
