Role of the advanced practice nurse in palliative care



Role of the advanced practice nurse in palliative care



International Journal of Palliative Nursing 22(3): 137-140



Palliative care is given to improve the quality of life of patients who have a serious or life-threatening disease. The role of the advanced practice nurse (APN) has significant value in this speciality. APNs provide holistic care, along with diagnostic and treatment expertise, and at the same time evaluate cost-effective use of resources. Palliative care APNs are specialists and leaders in disease-modifying care, pain and symptom management, giving attention to highest quality of life possible, and compassionate end-of-life care. The role of the APN has been highly recognised in the US and the aim of this article is to investigate this role. The article explores background, significance and a review of the literature. It concludes by emphasising the importance of APNs.
