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.

Very good intro on topic. Helps younger learners organize thoughts for family discussions.
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.
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.

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!

Excellent. I work in ICU, this helps give me clear understanding. Thank you.
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!
