8.2 contribute to addressing any distress experienced by the individual promptly and in agreed ways within end-of-life care
Weegy: End of life care encompasses palliative care, which focuses on managing pain and other distressing symptoms, providing psychological, social and spiritual support to patients, and supporting those close to the patient. [ Palliative care can be provided at any stage in the progression of a patient’s illness, not only in the last days of a patient’s life when the focus of treatment has generally moved from trying to actively manage disease and prevent deterioration to managing the patient’s symptoms and keeping them comfortable. The most difficult and sensitive decisions in end of life care are often those around starting, or stopping, potentially life-prolonging treatments such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), renal dialysis, ‘artificial’ nutrition and hydration (for the purpose of this guidance ‘artificial’ is replaced by ‘clinically assisted’1 ) and mechanical ventilation. These treatments have many potential benefits including extending the lives of patients who otherwise might die from their underlying condition. But in some circumstances they may only prolong the dying process or cause the patient unnecessary distress. The benefits, burdens and risks of these treatments are not always well understood and concerns can arise about over- or under- treatment, particularly where there is uncertainty about the clinical effect of a treatment on the individual patient, or about how the benefits and burdens for that patient are being assessed. Doctors and others involved in the decision-making process may also be unclear about what is legally and ethically permissible, especially in relation to decisions to stop a potentially life-prolonging treatment. ] (More)

8.4 assess when an individual and key people need to be alone within end-of-life care
Weegy: The health care provider must have a clear understanding and recognition of the unique and specific influences culture has on a patient’s behavior, attitudes, preferences, and decisions around end-of-life care. [ It is important to remember that simply because a person is identified as a member of a particular ethnic group or practices a particular religion it does not necessarily mean that the person or person’s family maintains beliefs that may be associated with the ethnicity or religion. ] (More)

6.3 explain how to establish when an advocate may be beneficial within end-of-life care
Weegy: An advocate may be beneficial as a support person or someone who can intercede on the behalf of another. [ [ While using an advocate, a patient and her family can focus more on recuperation or end-of-life care rather than handling the details surrounding care. Using the services offered by an advocate can reduce patient and family stress, lessen the chance of treatment and billing errors and help foster a greater sense of cooperation between the patient, family, medical professionals and health insurance providers.

9.3 describe ways to support key people immediately following an individuals death
Weegy: We show our compassion for others by recognizing their suffering and desiring to relieve them of it. We can be compassionate people by helping them with the tasks at hand. How do we know what to do? We can simply ask. [ We might help notify family and friends of the death. We might prepare the home to receive the many visitors who may arrive. We could organize the collection of food that others will bring. We might ask if we could watch the children for the family to give parents some time to themselves. We can help in everyday, practical ways. ] User: 10.1 identify ways to manage own feelings in relation to an individuals dying or death in a work environment (More)

4.2 provide support for the individual and key people that respects their beliefs, religion and culture within end-of-life care
Weegy: The consideration of institution of end-of-life care is an emotionally charged issue for the patient, their families and caregivers. Attitudes and approaches to palliative care vary widely amongst religions and cultures. [ Decisions are influenced by the beliefs of the caregivers, patients and their families. Given the heterogeneity of many societies including our own, it is worthwhile to examine the differences in approaches to palliative care and end-of-life issues in different cultures and religions. Even within individual countries, the manner in which palliative care is delivered varies by culture and religion. ] (More)
