Nurses in all settings are critical to ensuring quality care at the end of life. The End-of-Life Care Faculty aims to advance nurses’ contribution to end of life care by building knowledge, skills and resources in all aspects of end of life care. Facilitating a network of like-minded Fellows and Members who share an interest in these issues, this Faculty also provides opportunities to collaborate and engage with members of ACN to promote the importance of high-quality palliative and end-of-life care for all. This enables members of the Faculty to enhance their knowledge and stay up to date with the latest news, research findings, and professional, legal and ethical issues relevant to end of life care.
