Nurses are involved in difficult conversations concerning limiting medical treatment, and are often required to discuss issues surrounding end-of-life (EOL) care with the patient and their significant others. To date, there are few resources available to assist nurses in developing the vital skills needed to engage in critical EOL conversations with patients and their families.
