Supporting Oncology Nurses in End-of-Life Care

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

CareSearch is an online resource of palliative care information
and evidence, with resources to help support any nurse
providing care at the end of life.
Background
In recognition that Nurses are the largest group in the health
workforce and provide most direct patient and family care,
CareSearch looked at how to meet nurses diverse information needs
and to link to the evidence about what is known to be effective. The
CareSearch nurses hub was launched in August 2010.
Aim
The hub has been developed to support nurses in their practice, which
can be achieved in many way, and which will be highlighted here (e.g,
answering clinical questions using the clinical pages and associated
literature).
Methodology
The pages were written and reviewed by nurses specifically for nurses
in any setting, not just specialist palliative care. Palliative Care Nurses
Australia provided formal external peer review on these pages.
