ABSTRACT

Aim: To identify key issues raised by specialist nurses providing care to heart failure patients at the end of life as part of the baseline evaluation of the Marie Curie �Delivering Choice Programme� in the UK.
Method: Specialist heart failure nurses working in the community and hospital settings within three UK sites were invited to participate. Three focus groups (n= 15) took place between October 2005 and November 2006. A semi-structured aide memoire was designed to seek information about the nurses� roles, referral processes and working relationship with local palliative care services. The data were thematically analysed.
Results: The provision of good end of life care and the capacity for patients to plan and discuss end of life choices is dependent upon the skills, knowledge and experience of heart failure nurses. The uncertain trajectory of heart failure and the possibility of sudden death are challenges to the traditional model of palliative care. Experienced nurses can identify the terminal phase and discuss end of life choices with patients. They report that regular contact with patients for symptom management prevents unwanted hospital admissions and provides carer support. Lack of out of hours support leads to crisis admissions and changes in end of life care plans. Good palliative care for heart failure patients can be achieved through the development of collaborative working relationships and education initiatives between heart failure and palliative care services.
