PART A: DIGNIFIED CARE IN NURSING: Dignity; “the state or quality of being worthy of honour or respect.” (Oxforddictionaries.com, 2016). Nurses must respect patient dignity because they have a duty of care to each client.

Nurses lack of education, training, and lack of comfort in providing care was also seen as another barrier to good end of life care. Lack of knowing the patience preference or wishes regarding their care and treatment also created another obstacle for end life care. To make changes to these factors one of which that was made was the effective opening of communication, both with their team and with the patience family. Related to this is the use of a family care model and family involvement in clinical decision making. Nurses ability to act on previous experiences and their ability to support one another was also recognized as a positive factor to providing quality end of life care.
