Palliative care does not mean that we do nothing. It requires a paradigm shift in thinking to allow clients to die with dignity. The concepts may be difficult for nurses to deal with in such delicate situations. Through case studies, exercises and role play scenarios, this course will examine the principles of palliative care. Come explore how nurses can make a difference in the dying clients last days and the lives of those they leave behind.
