WNA’s Tri-Council (Nursing Practice & Quality, Education, and Research) offers this unique opportunity to learn from an esteemed panel of nursing experts the latest trends in practice, education, research, and policy impacting the role of the RN in the delivery of palliative and end-of-life care.  Information will be provided on the national perspective; the process and the value of advanced care planning; legal and ethical considerations around palliative care, end-of-life care, and advance care planning; and best practices in patient populations across the lifespan. Poster presentations will also showcase the latest knowledge and current practices from around the State. The day will culminate in an interactive session utilizing personal reflections as a means of improving care.
