NSSC 7000 - Palliative Approach in Nursing Practice

Nursing Specialty Part-time Studies Course

School of Health Sciences

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

Palliative Approach in Nursing Practice will prepare nurses to support and comfort patients and families who are facing end-of-life issues related to their disease progression or condition. Throughout this course you will examine your own attitudes towards living with a life-threatening illness, death, dying, and your assumptions about how care should be provided. The course will also support relational practice—inviting a way of being, knowing, and practicing that focuses on the patient and family’s lived experience as they approach the end of their lives.

Learning Outcomes

As licensed health care practitioners, all learners will practice in accordance with professional standards of practice throughout the course. Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:

  • Identify individuals in need of a palliative approach, based on an understanding of their illness trajectory, developmental stage, culture, and other characteristics that affect the individual’s health status and care needs.
  • Describe relational skills to support decision-making and negotiate a plan of care specific to the patients’ and families’ goals of care and to improve the patients’ and families’ living and dying experience.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skill in holistic, family-centered nursing care of persons who are experiencing pain and other symptoms.
  • Recognize ethical knowledge required when caring for persons at end-of-life and their families while attending to one’s own responses such as moral distress and dilemmas.
  • Recognize psychosocial, spiritual and practical issues related to care planning such as advance care planning and facilitating care in the patients’ and families’ preferred locations of care, including home.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of grief and bereavement to support others using a cross-cultural perspective.
  • Recognize the need to collaborate effectively to address the patient and family members’ priorities within an integrated inter-professional team, including non-professional health care providers, and the patient.
