Overview

End-of-life healthcare issues are more complex than ever. Your patients are more aware of their options and ability to exercise their rights, and you have the added stress of increased scrutiny from regulators like The Joint Commission. To provide the best level of care in end-of-life situations, turn to Evidence-Based Advance Directives: A Study Guide for Nurses. Using case studies and role play activities, Evidence-Based Advance Directives will help nurses become more comfortable discussing advance directives with patients. We examine the cultural elements that influence advance directives to help nurses learn how to broach this difficult subject, mindful of the cultural influences and without personal bias.
