Abstract

Aim. The present study aimed to determine the quality of end-of-life nursing care in the intensive care unit from the perspective of critical care nurses.

Background. Assessing the quality of nursing care is one of the most important strategies for nurse mangers to improve nursing care services and achieve high-quality nursing practice; it is crucial to assess this index on a regular basis.

Method. In this descriptive cross sectional-study, data were collected using modified quality of nursing care questionnaire. The questionnaire was adopted from the standardized Quality Patient Care Scale in psychosocial, physical, and communication dimensions. A convenient sampling method was used to recruit 191 registered nurses participated in the study within a 2-month period. The data were analyzed SPSS version 20 using descriptive and inferential statistics.
Findings. The mean score for quality of end-of-life nursing care was 83.62±8.62 in the psychosocial dimension, 85.36±7.74 in the communication dimension, and 92.23±10.88 in the physical dimension. Quality was reported to be favorable in the psychosocial dimension (62 percent), communication (50.3 percent) and physical dimension (81.7 percent), respectively. There was a statistically significant relationship between the quality of end-of-life nursing care and passing educational course.
Conclusion. The quality of end-of-life nursing care was good from the perspective of critical care nurses, but it was not as good as expected in some dimensions. The psychosocial aspect of end-of-life nursing care needs to be improved. Taking measures and planning educational programs to improve the appropriate therapeutic relationship between the nurse and the patient and paying attention to the psychological and social needs of patients as much as possible can be an effective step in improving the quality of end-of-life care.
