Abstract

The goal of this project was to identify current attitudes in end-of-life care and evaluate the needs for additional education to improve patient outcomes. Two categories were observed within the survey results; nurses' attitudes towards family members of the terminally ill patients and the nurses' attitudes towards caring for dying patients. Overall, the survey indicated a high confidence and positive attitude in both patient and family care. Nurses should continue to advocate and deliver optimal end-of-life patient care and reflect on their personal beliefs that may challenge caring for dying patients and their families.
