Nurse Comfort with Palliative and End-of-Life Communication

Communication is a key component of palliative and end-of-life care although little is known about comfort with palliative and end-of-life communication among nurses working in rural and urban settings. In a study published in the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Nursing, investigators assessed this comparison using the 28-item (including 2 ranked items) Comfort with Communication in Palliative and End-of-Life Care instrument and identified statistically significant differences for age and experience in these settings.
