not really applicable to Australian Nursing as we can already refer to palliative care while patients are still receiving active treatment, This is due to the way our healthcare system works. I found a lot of the questions in the exam confusing to answer as I answered them related to Australia and obviously the answer is different in the US.
Not a good Education module for Australian nurses as it really doesn't reflect how our system works as we are already doing what the course is trying to instigate in the US

Description

The results of four 'Promoting Excellence in End-of-Life Care' demonstration projects are discussed in this CEU course for nurses. The tested models of concurrent anti-cancer treatment and palliative care for patients with advanced cancer set out to answer several questions, including, 'How can state-of-the-art cancer care with its focus on survival coexist with services that assist patients in adapting to an uncertain future and support patients and families in planning and preparing for death?'; 'How will expanding access to palliative care affect quality of care?'; and 'How will palliative services that are associated with hospice care be received by patients, their families, and providers?'

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Enumerate the primary concerns among patients with life-limiting diseases such as cancer.

2. Explain what good cancer care requires.

3. Investigate at what point hospice patients and their families typically receive hospice care.

4. Identify the benefits of adding palliative services to cancer treatment.

5. Provide the essential ingredients for building a successful palliative care program.
