Patient Participation in Palliative Care

This chapter discusses palliative nursing, which begins from the moment the patient and family are told that the disease is no longer responsive to curative treatment. It shows that regardless of the setting, all nurses can provide effective palliative nursing. Nurses can help the patient and family feel valued and in control in an otherwise unfamiliar and unpredictable situation, by establishing a relationship based on trust and providing opportunities for their involvement.
