ESSAY
Care of dying patient is mainly associated with the providing of essential medical care to
the patient at the time of end of life. Care helps in improving the quality of life. This study will
include principles of palliative approach, communication in palliative approach, principles for
practice and also optimizing function of person with life limiting illness.
Principles of a palliative approach
Palliation is considered to be useful because it helps in improving the quality of life by
making patient feel more comfortable. Palliative care is an approach which improves quality of
life of patients who are facing problem associated with the life threatening illness. This is usually
done through prevention and and providing relief to the suffering (Masel, 2020). National
Palliative Care Standards mainly includes assessment of the needs, development of the care plan,
caring for the carers, providing care, transition within and between the services, grief support,
service culture, quality improvement and staff qualification and training. Promotion of dignity at
the time of care relations is considered to be as one of the key relevant aspect associated with the
ethical caring. Dignity is considered to be highly fundamental for supporting well- being to the
Frank within the health care setting. The social organization associated with the bereavement
practice is distressful. The culture tends to exert social influence on loss of the closed ones. This
is one of the stressful event and needs social support. Religious belief and age differentiation has
been pointed as one of the manner where the people tends to manage the issue associated with
death.
Family plays one of the keys significant role in providing of the palliative care to the
patient. Frank needs support from his wife Sofia. It is useful in providing emotional, physical and
spiritual support to the patient. It is of crucial importance to involve the care of the patient by the
nurse and other multidisciplinary team at the time of end of life (Mounsey, Ferres and Eastman,
2018). It is of crucial importance for the multi- disciplinary team and the nurses to provide the
best possible support and also educate them on what might happen at this time. It is significant in
addressing the key concern and also involve quality of life considerations. Quality of life
consideration and effective support to the Frank and his family members must be given to
promote comfort, support patients and relief of pain. Dying trajectories at the time of giving
palliative care treatment to the frank is linked with the terminal disease and restlessness.
