Session 3: Advanced Heart Failure: Palliation and the Balance of Care

Julie Tanner, BSN, RN-BC, CHPN®
Education Specialist
Education Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) · Pittsburgh, PA

ABSTRACT:

Providers are responsible for helping patients realize and determine their particular goals for end of life care. In advanced heart failure, many times a patient’s goal is for cure (transplantation) or life prolonging treatment (LVADs), while other times their goal may be for improved quality of life, comfort or symptom burden relief. Patients may have a goal to become more active or to rest more easily, to fight their disease until the last moments of life, or to die peacefully. These goals may exist simultaneously and typically change with time or disease progression. In each situation, providers should align achievable patient goals with potential therapies, ensuring that patients understand the expected outcomes of those therapies. This program focuses on the aspect of advanced heart failure disease trajectory and balancing the palliative nature of the disease with the care provided as defined by the patient’s identified goals. The presentation goal is to contribute to the continual learning curve required to support and drive long-term gains in the field of advanced heart failure and palliative care.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Define Palliative Care
  2. Differentiate historical models of hospice care with expanded models bridging palliation into end of life care
  3. Align achievable patient goals with potential therapies, ensuring that patients understand the expected outcomes of those therapies
