Abstract (type = abstract)
Purpose:
The purpose of this project was to review palliative care understanding among nurses with a bachelor’s degree enrolled in a doctoral nurse practitioner program during the clinical component of the educational program. Palliative care can be used as part of treatment to ease symptoms related to severe illnesses. Clinicians should have a fundamental understanding of palliative care and provide it as part of treatment plans when appropriate.

Methodology:
This project collected demographic data from participants. The project used the Palliative Care Quiz for Nursing (PCQN) and a palliative plan of care for a seriously ill patient pre-intervention, post, and a one-month follow up to assess for improvement on the knowledge of palliative care.

Results:
There was a total of 35 participants that were recruited for the project; 17 participants completed all aspects of the project. The intervention did yield a change in knowledge but there was no statistical significance among the pretest and post-tests. The plan of care showed improvement post the intervention in the treatment plans of a seriously ill patient that required palliative care.

Implications for Practice:
Palliative care education in the nurse practitioner curriculum is important because the population is aging. The fundamentals of palliative care are required for patients that are seriously ill. Clinicians and healthcare organizations can obtain reimbursement by Medicare and Medicaid if they provide advance care planning to patients. There are laws that have been adopted to encourage clinicians to provide palliative care. The implication for nurse practitioners to be well versed in palliative care is essential if they are responsible to provide a multifactorial treatment plan for all aspects of an illness. Quality of patient care and cost containment improves for the healthcare organization improves with the use of palliative care.
