Dr.Diane Meier insists that there are various ways in which nurses applytheir skills in assisting families with chronically ill patientsthrough the provision of quality care and services. She proposes tensteps through which nurses provide these services with the aim ofhelping the families cope with the situation. One of these measuresentails research and preparation which necessitates nurses to performseveral tasks before they sit with the client and their family. Theybuild a level of confidence between the household and the nurses(Hanson, Gedaly-Duff, Kaakinen and Coehlo, 2010).

Accordingto Hanson, Gedaly-Duff, Kaakinen and Coehlo (2010), the principles ofpalliative care may be applied in various situations that limit anindividual’s life. The approaches employed mainly focus on acutecare that facilitates in the orientation of the disease which in turnallows nurses to minimize the impact of the potential outcome. Theminimization of such effects occurs through the provision of closemonitoring and prompt treatment for complicated situations. Ininstances where the patient dies, the obligation of nurses entailsproviding end-of-life care through assessment and treatment ofphysical and psychological patient experiences.

Palliativecare aims at improving a patient’s welfare and their family throughactive treatment. It starts after diagnosis of the disease andcontinues after the patient dies. In Emma’s case, it began when shewas placed on the ventilator due to difficulties breathingindependently at birth (Hanson, Gedaly-Duff, Kaakinen and Coehlo,2010). The end-of-life care focuses on the period around deaththrough helping patients come to terms with the situation. It helpedher family to view her as an ordinary person that culminated in adignified death. The care eliminated distress and discomfort.

Aninterdisciplinary approach to palliative care plays a significantrole in the creation of a relationship between physicians and apatient’s family. For instance, in Linda’s case, it allowed theteam to provide an appropriate support structure that worked togethertowards the alleviation of the situation. The primary goal of theinterdisciplinary team entailed the provision of effectiveend-of-life care to Linda and her family through working together.These factors extrapolate the principles of palliate care that focuson creating a relationship between physicians and a patient’sfamily members (Hanson, Gedaly-Duff, Kaakinen and Coehlo, 2010).
