Impact of Palliative Education on ICU Nurses’ Moral Distress

Featuring: Catherina Madani, MSN, RN, CHPN and Cassia Chevillon, RN, MSN, CNS, CCRN
University of California at San Diego

Close to half of all Americans that die in a hospital spend time in a critical care unit within the last few days of their life and one in five Americans die in an ICU. Unfortunately, nurses rarely receive emotional preparedness training needed to care for these patients, leaving them in the midst of complicated situations feeling unempowered and frustrated — known as “moral distress.” This webinar will discuss an initiative to educate nurses about the need and benefit of palliative care in an ICU setting. Join us to learn how you can adapt this initiative for your hospital.

The initiative decreased length of stay rates and gave nurses more confidence in providing care for patients with behavioral disturbances.
