What is a typical shift like (what do you DO?) Drive to patients home, meet with them and their family. Discuss challenges in dealing with terminal illness, provide reassurance and teach coping skills. Provide community resources, financial assistance, emotional support. Coordinate with Team RN and Chaplain to provide medical and spiritual support. Answer questions, educate on disease progression and medication. I typically see 4-5 patients a day.
