Abstract

Caring for people approaching the end of their lives can be daunting for students, particularly those meeting this situation for the first time (Higginson 2006; Parry 2011). Students care deeply that the end-of-life care they offer is of a high quality but lack confidence in how to achieve this. Students' concerns are likely to include being anxious about what to say to patients and relatives, and how they might cope with witnessing death, perhaps for the first time.
A desire to offer good quality care is important but it is not sufficient in itself. Patients and relatives need nurses who have the skill and knowledge to ease the difficulties that end of life can bring. Therefore, nurses and all health and social care professionals need evidence-based knowledge to apply to the situations they encounter in practice. This book focuses on equipping students with the knowledge they need to care confidently for patients approaching the end of their lives.
