Nurses' Attitudes towards Death and Care of the Dying Patient

 As the population continues to age, more patients are dying in healthcare facilities than ever before (Bercovitz et al., 2008); nurses need to be prepared to provide end-of-life care to this population. This study examines the factors that affect nurse attitudes towards death and care of the dying patients. A descriptive correlation study was concluded in an acute care hospital during February 2012.

This study examines the factors that affect nurse attitudes towards death and care of the dying patients. A descriptive correlation study was concluded in an acute care hospital during February 2012. A total of 91 Registered Nurses completed a web-based survey, including Frommelt Attitude Toward Care of Dying Scale (FATCOD) and a demographic data form.
