Nurses' support needs in providing high-quality palliative care to persons with dementia in the hospital setting: A cross-sectional survey study - Online Course


Since dementia is an irreversible progressive disease characterized by a decline in mental functions and overall health, a palliative care approach is recommended. Nevertheless, many persons with dementia experience burdensome hospitalizations in end-of-life care. Their quality of life during hospitalization can be improved by palliative nursing care that suits their fragile health. The purpose of this article from Journal of Nursing Scholarship is to explore hospital nurses' perceived support needs while providing high-quality palliative care for persons with dementia and to identify differences between nurses in different ward types and at different educational levels.

This course will retire after 9th March 2026.
