Healthcare-Acquired Infections can be devastating financially, emotionally and physically to the client, family members, and healthcare staff. My audience for my teaching plan is clients and their family in the acute care setting. The purpose of my teaching plan is to provide this vulnerable group of individuals with the information need to prevent HAIs. This topic is serious and is important in my everyday functions as a nurse.

In the past, nursing care has focused on individuals or communities of people, but in more recent years, the profession has begun to see the care of families as a nursing specialty (Hanson, 2012). The characteristics of a family impacts how they deal with and overcome stressors. Communication, respect, trust, and support contribute to the health of families by providing tools to solve conflicts and problems (Rowe Kaakinen, Padgett Coehlo, Steele, Tabacco, & Harmon Hanson, 2015). For this post I will consider a family that I have encountered, discuss the healthy family traits that they exhibit and identify the roles that I used as a family nurse caring for this family.

How May Nurses in Acute Settings Support Families in End of Life Care? The purpose of this paper is to provide insight into how nurses may better support families during end of life care. Nurses are faced with multiple tasks and responsibilities within their careers; however, are nurses fully prepared for the immense amount of responsibility that it takes to care for patients and their families during end of life care? I will use Ruland & Moore’s (1998) Peaceful End of Life Theory to explore how this theory is relevant to my research topic of how nurses in acute settings may support families during end of life care. In the form of a literature review, I will outline common themes found throughout the literature and identify the most prominent barriers that nurses, patients and their families face during end of life care.
