What Every APRN Needs to Know About Palliative Care
With our aging population and a shortage of expert palliative care practitioners, there will never be enough specialists to provide all the palliative care needed. Every advanced practice nurse strives to anticipate and relieve the suffering of patients through the nursing process, the core of nursing’s patient-focused care. By integrating basic palliative care skills into their “toolkit,” any nursing professional at any level and in any setting will be better able to provide more palliative care support to the many patients with whom they interact daily.

Palliative care is specialized care, an extra level of support, for people with serious or chronic illnesses. Appropriate from point of diagnosis onward, it focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, going hand-in-hand with curative treatment to improve the quality of life for both the patient and their family.
