Caring for older people's families: meeting the challenges
Dealing with a patient’s family/carers in challenging situations is a regular occurrence for health care workers. There are many questions that arise:
'What do we do when the families won't allow us to . . . . . (give pain medication, refer to palliative care, or withdraw treatment)?
'How do we resolve family about . . . . (sending their relative to hospital, end-of-life care planning, medications)’?
‘How do you tell a family member about an unexpected death, particularly over the phone at night?’
‘How do you run a family meeting, ?’
‘How should we involve families in care planning?’
How do you conduct a family assessment, e.g., to establish various roles and relationships?
- What do you do when there is NO family?
Nurses, caring for older Australians need skills, education and encouragement to facilitate family support. This seminar designed for ALL nurses offers a structured session covering many of the skills required to communicate effectively with families/carers while advocating for their patients.
