A RESEARCH TO PRACTICE PRESENTATION
Co-sponsored by the
Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention
and the North Okanagan Hospice Society
The relationship between hope
and advance care planning
Dr. Carole Robinson, Associate Professor, School of Nursing,
Faculty of Health and Social Development, University of British Columbia's Okanagan campus
Concerns have been identified in the literature that advance care planning, which involves frank discussion about end-of-life issues, has the potential to negatively affect hope. The concern leads to clinical tension between two ideals of palliative care: supporting hope and communicating truthfully.
The presentation supports the position that the foundation of hope is not the issue; rather, how hope works is more salient to clinical practice.
