For Nurses

Nurses have a key role in caring for older people at the end of life. Palliative care is part of that role.

Your training may have focused on treatment and cure. The palliative care focus on quality of life and support for physical, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of the older person and their family might be new to you. Or you may be responsible for implementing palliative care in your organisation and want to make certain that you are taking an evidence-based approach.

palliAGED is there to support you with guidance for best practice palliative care based on the evidence identified and appraised by palliAGED.
