Workshop Presentations:  Palliative Care: Is Every Nurse’s Business, by Katherine Murray

People go to acute care, oncology care and emergency to be cured, fixed and sent home. They go to long term care to receive assistance, person centered and restorative care. Eventually, the statistics confirm that 100% of people die. Where do people die and who cares?
The focus of these two sessions will be to discuss the realities of life and death, look at palliative care as part of the work that every nurse does, identify common patterns of dying, share strategies that will help you integrate a palliative approach in any care setting and increase your comfort and confidence in addressing the needs of the dying person and their families.

Pre-Conference Workshop: Palliative Care: Every Nurse’s Business, by Katherine Murray and Jeanne Weiss, CLPNA.

Summary: Hospice palliative care was developed to best address the needs of the dying person and their family. In Canada, less than 30% of dying persons receive services from a specialized hospice palliative care service. Although most people want to die at home, in reality, most will die with long term life-limiting illnesses, in acute and long term care settings. The purpose of this session is to explore palliative care as “every nurse’s business,” identify best practice interactions, and discuss practical tools and strategies to increase physical comfort and address psycho-social issues. The role of the LPN in responding to requests for Medical Assistance in Dying will also be addressed.
This one-day session is open to all care providers; however, the focus will be on the role of the Practical Nurse and the PN educator.
Link to Registration  Seating limited to 60 participants. Early registration is advised to avoid disappointment
