Abstract (type = abstract)
Nurses are often faced with death and dying in their careers. Caring for patients and their families at the end-of-life often forces nurses to reflect on their own anxieties, attitudes, beliefs and knowledge about this last stage of life. Education for nurses providing end-of-life care is crucial in order to decrease anxieties, improve communication, and increase confidence and knowledge in providing care for these patients and families. This quality improvement project focused on improving care at the end-of-life on an inpatient oncology unit. The project involved instruction alongside case- study based simulation to ultimately improve nursing communication and increase knowledge and confidence amongst nurses caring for patients and families at the end of life. A demographic survey and evidence-based tools were administered before the intervention and immediately following and two months after the intervention. 20 nurses were recruited and completed educational and simulation experience. Results were significant in showing nurses had fewer anxieties and death concerns. In addition nurses' felt more confident in caring for and communicating with patients at the end of life after education and simulation experience. However, findings on Nurses' spiritual beliefs and attitudes from pre and posttests were not significant.
