In the subcategory of practice, the focal point to consider is number 3. As a nurse, one is required to note that the reality of a person’s death is something that is difficult for both the patients and their families. As a nurse, one is needed to be in a position to offer guidance to these people. In this case, he or she should be comfortable discussing about death and offer appropriate comfort to the families. In addition, the nurse should collaborate with other professionals to ensure that the most accurate information is provided. In the subcategory of education, the focal point to consider is number 1. Nurses are required to offer emotional, physical, spiritual, and practical care for patients in each phase of life (Jors et al., 2016). They spend more time with patients nearing end of life in comparison to other health professionals. For this reason, they are required to receive the training and practical experience needed to conduct the duties in the best way possible. In the research subcategory, the focal point to consider is number 1. In this case, there has been a change in medicine towards evidence based medicine. The field of palliative care covers a group of various ailments. Hence, the future of evidence based medicine needs to be diverse to make sure that all patients are able to benefit as much as possible. Lastly, in the administration subcategory, the focal point to be considered is number 1. In most cases, palliative care takes place up to the time when the patient dies. Afterwards, the process comes to an abrupt end. However, it is important to consider that the family members still require help in coping with the demise. For this reason, there should be strategies of ensuring that care is extended to family members after death.
