Hospice and palliative nurses work side-by-side with patients, their families and an interdisciplinary team to provide care to palliative patients. Attending to the patient's end-of-life physiological and psychological responses and requirements as well as the social and cultural factors and the spiritual aspects of care is the essence of palliative nursing. ANA's newly revised Hospice and Palliative Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice
reflects the specialty's development into a practice that encompasses hospice and palliative nursing. It provides standards and competencies for all levels of practice. Order today!
