Essentials in Hospice and Palliative Care: A Practical Resource for Every Nurse – Textbook


The Nurse’s text is “…the go-to guide…”

Kelli Stadjuhar, RN, PhD, School of Nursing and Centre on Aging, University of Victoria

The nurse’s text was written because, in a nurse’s professional, personal, and community life, they care for dying people and their families. This text will help every nurse – practical nurses, registered nurses, BSN nurses – to learn the skills of providing hospice and palliative care. Learn how to integrate a palliative approach into care by incorporating the principles and practices of hospice and palliative care across all care settings, early in the disease process, for people with any life-limiting illness.

Essentials in Hospice and Palliative Care: A Practical Resource for Every Nurse provides learners with the knowledge, skills, and strategies for providing excellent hospice and palliative care and as such, is an essential resource for every nurse. The text:

  • Addresses ethical principles and questions through ethical touchstones.
  • Incorporates stories to help nurses develop cultural competence and cultural humility.
  • Encourages nurses to consider their role as a leader and advocate through day-to-day work.
  • Can help to increase a nurse’s confidence, competence, and compassion in caring for the dying person and their family.
