DEU Model: A Nursing Case Study

92 Words1 Page
Many nurses and graduate nurses have not been adequately prepared to care for patients in the hospice and palliative care setting (Chmura, 2016). There needs to be a focus of education in the university and clinical setting on pain and symptom management and therapeutic communication skills with the dying patient and his/her family. One possible solution to this problem is the implementation of the dedicated education unit (DEU) model, developed by the University of Buffalo Science of Nursing in collaboration with the Center for Hospice and Palliative Care of Buffalo, New York.
