Poster 109: Kalen Gunter – Interactions Between Family Caregivers and Visiting Hospice Nurses

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Lee Ellington

The goal of this research is to discover the strategies nurses are using in order to help assist full-time employed FCGs who are caring for cancer patients enrolled in hospice programs. This was accomplished by a descriptive study in which transcripts of nurse-employed family caregiver interactions during hospice home visits will be reviewed and encoded. We found that the family caregiver initiated conversation about employment more frequently than the hospice nurse did.
