With the leadership team comprising senior nurse leaders who are experts in end-of-life care, the End-of-Life Care Faculty aims to foster awareness of the key components of high-quality palliative, end-of-life care and their importance in caring for older people. Facilitating a network of like-minded Fellows and Members who share an interest in these issues, this Faculty provides opportunities to collaborate and engage with members of ACN to promote the importance of high-quality palliative and end-of-life care in nursing. This enables members of the Faculty to enhance their knowledge and stay up to date with the latest news, research findings, and regulation.
