Abstract

Good primary care improves the health and wealth of nations as it is the context in which the majority of healthcare is delivered. Improving the quality of palliative care and reducing adverse patient related events are priority areas for improvement in primary care. One aspect of primary care that community nurses can improve is the quality of end of life skin care that. Given that the main objective of all end of life care is to facilitate a comfortable and dignified death for the patient in line with their wishes, it is important for nurses in primary care to be aware of what they can to ensure the consistent delivery of safe end of life skin care. This paper highlights key elements of the end of life skin care to prevent pressure ulcers which community nurses should take into account in their efforts to improve this aspect of primary care.
