Development needed


Needs further development

  • Invite family presence and engage in use of nurse presence
  • Develop individual-nurse-family relationship/connection/partnership
  • Assess family struggling and ways to support the family
  • Acknowledge the work of family during illness experience
  • Explore the thinking and concerns of family
  • Discuss with family their connections with each other and the illness
