End of Life Care - Online Inservice
Patients in their final stages of life will experience a variety of feelings, and their wishes need to be respected by those who provide care, especially CNAs, who interact with these individuals on a daily basis. As a result, it is important for CNAs to understand the process a resident goes through as he or she is dying. This inservice is for certified nurse aides and caregivers of all kinds that will be providing care to those who are dying or have terminal illnesses.
