Very helpful in the eventuality of speaking pragmatically yet with sensitivity in discussions with loved ones.
GAYLE GWOZDZ, NP
Too basic. Not enough information provided. No difficult patient situations or scenarios provided to stimulate the provider's thought process and understanding. This is a FAR more complicated topic than what was discussed. This brief lecture series did not do it justice. This is the only topic which I feel could have been greatly enhance, all the others have been incredible!
DIANA HAMMACK, NP
Excellent. Clear and succinct discussion of DNR and patient choices. I like that you may turn around and use this verbatim helping families and patients make informed decisions.
KAMALA RAJOO, RN
Excellent. I work in ICU, this helps give me clear understanding. Thank you.

It is an important concept to know, especially more and more babyboomers are going to be under medicare. I feel that I can do better care according to the patient's will after the lecture.
MICHELLE EVA MORHOLT (NP Student)
Excellent and thorough. Thank you for emphasis on cultural considerations, patient values, and encouraging Learners to explore ways to provide patients and loved ones specifics regarding the interventions and the side effects. I usually approach the conversation from a perceived values perspective but I will be incorporating the "4 pillars" concept next time. Thank you!
AFONNE ALIMOLE, NP
Great illustration, clear explanations. Very nice pillar analogy. A good introduction to palliative care for all clinicians. Just to make aware that palliative care is not called upon only when curative treatment options are no longer being explored but can be provided alongside curative therapies with a focus on symptom management and advanced care planning discussions. Thank you.
ESTHER MAYORGA, RN
Concise and clear cut to the point. Reinforced the importance of the healthcare provider's duty to present this information to the patient as well as family so they can make an informed decision about end of life care.
DAVID WARREN, MD
As an end stage patient, I appreciate the courage of your convictions. I choose to believe that more of 'us' are less afraid of having them than our families and health care professionals.
